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.
The college also has selected 10 students to be a part of the “technology student team” that will assist faculty members in designing activities for their classes.
“This is an innovative model, based on 21st century skills that include collaboration between the faculty and the student,” Cullen said. “We are trying to design this collaboration to get the students engaged with the faculty so that they are learning together as future and current educators.”
Through the One University digital initiative, OU is broadly implementing technology through videos and dynamic online course materials formatted specifically for the iPad that are continuously being made available on iTunes U. The university also is developing a new iPad app to offer additional services to students.
