CISE launches iPad learning lab- November 12, 2013 - Donations to the Department of Curriculum, Instruction and Special Education (CISE) at Mississippi State University recently helped the department purchase an iPad learning lab. The lab consists of 15 iPads and a cart for storing, locking, charging, and syncing the devices.
A variety of apps for teaching content in many different subject areas have been installed on the iPads. MSU instructors can use those apps or select appropriate apps for their courses. The cart can be checked out by faculty who want to give their students experiences using the iPad as a tool for teacher education.
CISE recognizes that more and more of MSU's teacher education graduates are going to be teaching in schools that have a wide variety of instructional technology. There are several local districts where schools have one-to-one laptop or tablet programs,in which every student receives a laptop or tablet computer and teachers use those for their instruction.
CISE wants to pre-service teachers to have experiences using e-books, learning games, instructional videos, movie making and other tools for teaching content areas. The department will also use the iPads to teach about using technology to accommodate students with special needs and to differentiate instruction.
The iPads will be stored at The Learning Center in Allen Hall. Faculty members will be able to reserve the carts online and check them out to use in classes.
