Future teachers learning with iPads at University of Oklahoma
The next generation of teachers to graduate from the University of Oklahoma will be armed with iPads as part of a pilot program designed to integrate education and technology.
NORMAN — The University of Oklahoma is giving out nearly 600 iPads as part of a digital initiative to enhance learning with technology.
Gregg Garn, dean of OU’s Jeannine Rainbolt College of Education, said it makes sense for prospective teachers to use the latest technology.
“We’re just convinced that’s going to make them better teachers,” Garn said.
