We examined how 342 teachers from a large school district used iPad in their instruction. These teachers participated in their district provided professional development as part of the district launched iPad initiative and were given an iPad to use 24/7. We were interested in how they used iPads in their instruction given the PD provided and any change in their use of iPads from mid-year to end-year during the one-year implementation of this district wide mobile initiative. The results showed a wide variety of iPad uses by the teachers and their students from basic uses such as using the device for monitoring noise level and playing music, or as a projection tool to more interactive use such as creating artifacts. Specific examples are documented. There is much interest in using mobile technology in K-12 education. However, there lacks sufficient empirical research to understand how teachers use tablets in their instruction. Such evidence-based research is much needed.
