Mixed Methods, Mixed Results: A Study of Engagement Among Students Using iPads in Library Instruction
The purpose of this study is to explore the value of integrating tablet computers (iPads) into library instruction for first-year composition students. Many librarians and other faculty have reported their initial use of tablets in libraries and other instructional settings; however there is little established evidence that this technology has an effect on student engagement and learning.
