13 PC teachers participating in trial iPad program

Posted 4/8/13

PROVIDENCE – Thirteen Providence College professors are taking part this semester in a trial program to incorporate Apple iPads into classrooms to allow them to move about freely while lecturing and to let students access recordings or notes after class.

The Academic Media Services and the Information Technology departments outfitted five classrooms with an Apple TV, which wirelessly connects an iPad to a projector. In order to test the iPads in as many environments as possible, the classrooms differ in setup and purpose.

Professors using the iPads include those teaching theology, accountancy, global studies, engineering/physics/systems, chemistry and biochemistry, foreign-language studies and history.

“A few professors came to us wanting to try this. The idea came from the faculty,” said Siobhan Ross Humphries, coordinator of the Instructional Technology Department program. “There’s a lot less sitting and just taking notes in class. Students can be more involved now.”

If students and professors involved in the trial program give a positive review, the number of classrooms equipped with the iPads and Apple TVs will be expanded next semester. •
