The current paper will present findings from a pilot research study during which two project-based inter-disciplinary collaborative activities were implemented with 41 undergraduate education students at Zayed University in the United Arab Emirates. The project was employed in two courses, namely Early Childhood Mathematics and Science and Literature for Children and Adolescents. In addition to course specific assignments, students completed two collaborative iPad-based assignments across both courses, namely: a) Arabic Scientist/Mathematician Biography; and b) E-book fairy/folk tale.
