Abilene Christian University. (2013).  2012-2013 Mobile Learning Report. ACU Adams Center for Teaching and Learning, p.12

The 2013 mobile learning report was the last report ACU completed. There were a new group of people running the initiative as referenced by the change in the title. They did have some great research that was started before the report and i particularly found it advantageous that one researcher was studying the field of AR with iPads.

This is a document Apple uses to help leaders prepare a vision, set goals and work with the community to implement a digital learning initiative. It was helpful in creating an implementation outline.

Barkley, E. F. (2009). Student Engagement Techniques: A Handbook for College Faculty. San Francisco, CA: Jossey-Bass., p. 23

I like how this part of this book focusses on the student doing the work and being an active participant in their learning. The taking ownership of their own work is something I have come across a few times. I am a firm believer that challenging students with regular assignments with meaningful grades is critical for real engagement.

Brooks, D. (2106). ECAR Study of Undergraduate Students and Information Technology, 2016. (Research Report Summary) Louisville, CO: ECAR, October 2016. , pp. 8-10

This was the most recent EDUCAUSE study I referenced. I used this study to create an objection to my premise that students preferred laptops and  iPads were as capable as laptops with students. Using the ACU study as my counterpoint.

Cardullo, V. M. & Clark, L. L. (2020a). Exploring Faculty and Student iPad Integration in Higher Education. In Management Association, I. (Ed.), Mobile Devices in Education: Breakthroughs in Research and Practice, pp. 752-772

The first use if this report was to set the understanding that many schools have implemented iPads in their classrooms since its introduction. It goes on to point out the successes and failings of teaching and learning with iPad.

  This second reference is the same as the first. It sets a horizon date for the iPad in education and explains the expansive use of iPad in education institutions,

Chong, E. (2012). Contemplating Composition Pedogogy in the iPad Era. Weller, J., Paper presented at the Draft Proceedings of the 19th International Seminar of the Commission for the Education of the Professional MusicianInternational Society for Music Education, Athens, Greece.

This article specifically discusses the use of iPad in music production and comes to the same conclusion I do in the overall premise of my video. As the device gains more features, more traditional tools will be connected to it and replaced by it.

Deaton, B. (2017).  Anderson University: Mobile Learning Initiative. Anderson University, p. 7

Anderson university is a liberal arts college about the size of the university I am proposing the innovation plan. They have had a very successful implementation and are spreading the message of iPad usage for teaching and learning to other schools. They strongly embrace COVA.

Dahlstrom, E. (2012).  ECAR Study of Undergraduate Students and Information Technology, 2012. (Research Report) Louisville, CO: ECAR, September 2012. , pp. 9-16

The EDUCAUSE studies are great because they contain survey data from students, faculty and administrators. I often site the key findings, will need to dig into the report for a bit more detail. This report dealt with universities needing to create mobile friendly resources. They did, but not in teaching.

Dahlstrom, E., Walker J.D. & Dziuban C. (2013).  ECAR Study of Undergraduate Students and Information Technology, 2013. (Research report) Louisville, CO: ECAR, September 2013. , p.5 

EDUCAUSE studies are great because they contain survey data from students, faculty and administrators. They often contain great infographics. This report had information about a survey of students responding that they wanted the use of more mobile technology in their college experience.

Grabiec, J. (2016).  iCan with iOS. : Jenny Grabiec. p.3

This Apple Book focusses on the universal access features built-into every iPad. Apple attempts to support almost every form of disability with great success. These features alone should be a deciding factor in using iPad as the digital learning platform of choice for all schools.

Hughes, J. E. (2013).  Preparing 21st century teachers : the relationship of technology integration, digital equity, and the preparation of new teachers (Doctoral dissertation). The University of Texas at Austin. p.27  Retrieved from

  The question of digit equity doesn’t just mean the have-nots with the haves, it also speaks to the learners with physical disabilities, learning issues and even social challenges. this dissertation dives deep into equity issues, but the statement I used in the review will be one I reuse often.

Lynn University. (2019).  Engage. Elevate. Expand. Lynn University, Introduction video. Apple Books.  Retrieved from

Lynn University’s video has the messages I want my target audience to hear. They are a Liberal arts college that has been using iPad Pro for 5 years and have a great deal of good things to report. They also articulate the information well.

This article contains finding from an iPad pilot project like the one I am proposing. Their findings were very positive and a great reference for inclusion in my literature review.

Morrison, J. (2018, November 19). I tried to edit an ENTIRE video on iPad Pro… . Retrieved from

Johnathan is one of the best youtube videographers. He is an Apple product user and usually does reviews and has something to say about iPad products. This video cemented the idea that iPad Pro can be used for high resolution video editing.

Northwest Kansas Technical College. (2012).  Northwest Kansas Technical College – Self Study. pp. 115-123  Retrieved from

THE FIRST college to have an iPad initiative. I have visited Northwest Kansas Tech and have seen students using iPad in technical education. They have found innovative ways to integrate iPad apps into courses that have no dedicated apps. Their program has increased job placement every year since starting their initiative.

Oblinger, D. (2004). Leading the transition from classrooms to learning spaces. Educause Learning Initiative, pp. 1-2  Retrieved from

This was an early EDUCAUSE article, not part of a yearly report. I used this article because it pointed out that spending lots of money to outfit spaced with current technology was folly. You should build the space to support the changing technology that students carry with them.

Singh, C. (2021, January 20). Why Flipped Classes Often Flop. Inside Higher Education, Retrieved from:

I didn’t use this article, but considered using it for my premise for my innovation plan because it was relevant to the current situation in education today and discusses the need for students to do regular work with expectations and grades. Engagement cannot happen when the teacher is disengaged.

Tong, V., Standen, A., Sotiriou, M. (2018). Shaping Higher Education with Students Ways to Connect Research and Teaching: UCL Press, p.3 

I found this page at the beginning of this book to be a great introduction to a highly complex book. It sets the overall topic of haw students interact with teachers to improve the pedagogy to make classroom interaction more affective.
