Lesson Goals[edit | edit source]

The goal of this wiki is as follows:

Instructors and teachers, whose students use (or will use) tablet technologies in the classrooms, will be able to develop lesson plans that integrate tablet technology. This will result in two gains. For the instructors and teachers this will result in increased teacher self-efficacy for incorporating technology in the classroom. For the teacher’s students they will benefit from integrated usage of tablet technologies in the classroom and lesson plans.
