An, Heejung, Ed.; Alon, Sandra, Ed.; Fuentes, David, Ed.
The inclusion of new and emerging technologies in the education sector has been a topic of interest to researchers, educators, and software developers alike in recent years. Utilizing the proper tools in a classroom setting is a critical factor in student success. "Tablets in K-12 Education: Integrated Experiences and Implications" explores the use of hand-held mobile devices in primary and secondary classrooms to assist in learning, sharing, and communication among students and teachers. With cutting-edge research on pedagogy, practice, and new initiatives for mobile learning devices and applications, this advanced reference source provides educators, technology coordinators, administrators, and other faculty with the resources needed to effectively implement mobile applications in their classrooms. Following a foreword (Orrin T. Murray), preface (Heejung An, Sandra Alon, and David Fuentes), and an acknowledgment section (Heejung An, Sandra Alon, and David Fuentes), this book is organized into the following sections and chapters: Section 1: Theoretical and Conceptual Orientations: (1) From App Attack to Goal-Oriented Tablet Use (Dominic Mentor); (2) iPad Implementation Approaches in K-12 School Environments (Heejung An, Sandra Alon, and David Fuentes); (3) Using Mobile Devices Selectively: Developing Constructivist Pedagogy to Support Mobile Learning (David Fuentes, Heejung An, and Sandra Alon); (4) Emerging Use of Tablets in K-12 Environments: Issues and Implications in K-12 Schools (Alex Kumi-Yeboah and Kelli Sue Campbell); (5) Mobile Devices and Classroom Management: Considerations and Applications for Effective Use in an Elementary School Classroom (David Fuentes, Heejung An, and Sandra Alon); and (6) mLearning to Enhance Disaster Preparedness Education in K-12 Schools (Thomas Chandler and Jaishree Beedasy).
