iPad Use and Student Engagement in the Classroom

Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology Volume 14, Number 1, ISSN 1303-6521


iPads and handheld digital devices have been securing their place in educational institutions surrounded by debates between advocates and skeptics. In light of not enough evidence supporting the use of iPads in education, this study examined the ways that college students in two foreign language classrooms perceived the influence of the use of iPads on their learning and engagement with classroom activities. The participants, students enrolled in two foreign language classrooms at a college in the Southwest of the US, responded to a 5-point Likert type questionnaire. The data analysis and results showed that students believed that the iPads played a significant role in their learning engagement thus promoting active learning in the classroom and paving way for student success.
