Abstract

Few studies have provided preservice teachers with opportunities to use iPads in authentic settings with K-12 students even though this may be the most important of all experiences for preservice teachers (Rhodes, 2013). This study examines preservice teachers’ perceptions of using iPads with Kindergarten through third grade students participating in a not for profit afterschool tutoring program. The study involved 77 preservice teachers enrolled in a technology integration course at a large southeastern university. Preliminary findings note preservice teachers’ increased awareness of how iPads can be used as a teaching tool.
