Abstract: The Apple iPad has been one of the most quickly adopted digital technologies in recent history. More than 1.5 million iPads are used specifically for education and more than 20,000 educational applications have been created. Understanding how it is being used both formally and informally in educational settings is an important issue for researchers. The purpose of this study was to examine graduate students’ use of personal iPads. A qualitative case study approach was conducted with 12 participants. Semi-structured interviews, classroom observations, and artifacts were used in data collection. The data were described in detail for each case and seven themes were developed: affordances, access to written materials, access to Internet resources and services, tool for note taking, tool for organizing, tool for presentations, and tool for working on assignments. This study can help educators better understand how students are currently using iPads and shape future use.
