Welcome to Integrating iPads into the Classroom
Over 1.5 million iPads are currently in use in educational institutions, which includes over 1,000 one-to-one programs. Nearly every week, another school makes the headlines by implementing an iPad-to-student program. For many, such technology integration programs make perfect sense:
- Technology is a tool, which can facilitate problem-based learning.
- Technology is engaging, and students are motivated by such engagement.
- Students are “digital natives” and live in a world that expects to use technology.
- Parents and community members want to see students use the latest technology for learning.
Regardless of your perspective for one-to-one iPad programs, it is probable that you have decided to view this course to become more familiar with how to integrate iPads into your classroom. Such integration includes two key elements:
- Training on how to technologically use an iPad
- Training on how to use an iPad for classroom learning.

However, one of the best things about this app is that the model and strategies presented make sense no matter what or where you are teaching." - 3rd grade teacher "Even with years of experience as a teacher, I found this app helpful. Dr. Garrett gave a name to a lot of the things I already do. But this will help me when I mentor future novice teachers and need to explain things about my classroom management approach." - 9th and 10th grade teacher "Wow! I can’t believe how much I learned from this app. As a beginning teacher, there is so much I didn’t know about classroom management. I think the framework and strategies covered in this app will help me so much." - 5th grade teacher "I am definitely going to have all my student teachers explore this app because everything that is presented is necessary and helpful. I love the name of the app because that is what this app is... the essentials!

|11||StarStat||StarStat is a free statistical calculator designed to easily perform tests of statistical significance on your survey data. Survey researchers use significance testing as an aid in expressing the reliability of survey results. Phrases such as "significantly different," "margin of error," and "confidence levels" help describe and make comparisons when analyzing data. The purpose of this free tool is to aid researchers in performing appropriate statistical tests for data analysis. StarStat includes 3 different tests: Z-test Calculator: The z-test of proportions is used to test the difference between proportions (percentages) for two groups. Statistics computed provide the probability that a difference at least as large as noted would have occurred by chance if the two population proportions were in fact equal. T-test Calculator: The t-test of independent means is used to test the difference between means for two groups. Statistics computed provide the probability that a difference at least as large as noted would have occurred by chance if the two population means were in fact equal. Sample Precision Calculator: Sample precision or margin of error calculations determine a conservative estimate of sampling error for a given sample size. These estimates are helpful in answering questions like: "How large a sample do I need?" or "How reliable are my survey results?" StarStat was developed by DataStar, Inc., a leading provider of survey management and data processing services, specializing in web surveys for employee and customer feedback.

Good Material......Audio Streaming Stinks
Course content is well laid out, however, it loses its' effectiveness when the audio streaming stops and you have to constantly hit the play button. Possibly my settings are not set properly.
Clearly I need to run through this a second time
The content is relevant and needs to be appreciated for it's attention to detail and thoughtfulness. Thank you Union University.
