Elementary Students Take iPads Home: Mobile-Assisted Instructional Design Strategies for Tutoring
With a need to decrease disparity and support at-risk students that were not meeting grade level benchmarks for math, a team of elementary teachers and university faculty created a mobile-assisted instructional design strategy for home tutoring with iPads for elementary students. The new model used evidence-based research from indirect instructional design strategies of computer-assisted instruction and two additional instructional strategies to supply independent direct instruction: drill and practice and experiential learning through gaming. Current data analysis from 'iPads Go Home' indicates a connection between improved learning outcomes and iPad application use, while decreasing issues of disparity for at-risk students.

In this presentation we will share how iPads have been used to increase cross-curricular collaboration and form a relevant and user-friendly professional learning network within a school. Instead of forcing teachers to adopt education specific software, the goal is to transform personal social media applications, websites the majority of teachers already use daily, into powerful professional learning tools. By channeling the familiar, teachers can take advantage of the same applications for sharing photos and vacation adventures and transform them into tools for increasing collaboration, sharing instructional strategies, and aligning curriculum.
