Abstract

Reflecting on a rapid transition to 1:1 iPad use in a teacher education program – from the perspective of a math teacher-educator teaching a mathematics methods course to a middle school cohort of pre-service teachers. This paper examines the experience had by one instructor within a pilot program – prior to examining the program as part of a group/cohort evaluation. The focus is on practical questions that arise in conversation and their answers from the perspective of an individual instructor. What motivated the introduction of iPads? What were the goals and expectations? What successes were observed and what challenges cropped up? What recommendations might be made for the adoption of iPad like technologies in future mathematics methods courses?
