Twelve experienced teachers who had previously used iPads in their teaching for at least one year participated in a qualitative investigation of the knowledge and skills they needed to use iPads effectively in teaching. Through analysis of interviews, classroom observations, and documents, the data suggested that the participating teachers relied on twelve elements of skills and knowledge when integrating iPads into their teaching processes, seven elements of pedagogical skills and knowledge and five elements of technological skills and knowledge. Based on the findings of the teachers’ integrated application of skills and knowledge directed toward instructional goals, this study provides guidance for planning teacher preparation and professional development in the use of mobile technologies such as iPads to leverage their unique features that may improve and enhance teaching and learning.
