iPads and Digital Storytelling: Successes and Challenges With Classroom Implementation
Save to My Collections
This paper presents successes and challenges of two iPad implementation projects in K-12 schools. The focus of the implementation was on the incorporation of digital storytelling activities in classroom. The iPad devices and specific apps were the tools used for this technology-enhanced implementation. Findings of the research provide details about introducing new touchscreen technology into the classroom, engagement of students with mobile connected devices, use of StoryRobe and StoryKit apps, and issues/solutions identified with the management of iPad devices. Numerous implications of this research, including examining the constructionist theories and the learning behind the creation of educational artifacts, apply to the development of 21st Century learner skills. In practice, both management issues regarding implementing new technology as well as the pedagogical implications exist; providing students with technology access that allows them to create digital stories and share them beyond the classroom.
