Abstract

This paper will detail the current progress of a one-to-one tablet initiative at a urban elementary school in the southeastern United States. Results of pre-study interviews around a kindergarten teachers’ efficacy with technology both professionally and personally and TPACK integration, examples of the collaboration between the teacher and researchers around effective technology integration, and classroom observation data will be shared. We hope to generate conversations around one-to-one tablet integration in kindergarten classrooms around science content.
