3:00pm to 3:30pm (GMT)

The purpose of this case study was to enhance teaching and learning through the embedding of iPad tablets within the Faculty of Health Psychology and Social Care at Manchester Metropolitan University. The focus was on developing innovative ways of enthusing learners in classroom based settings, to meet the needs of a diverse student population. As such, we have used iPads to promote both active engagement with the curriculum and collaborative learning (see Kocksman, 1994).

This interactive session will demonstrate how we have used iPads and the video applications (apps) within practical skills sessions, to promote reflection and peer review. We will also present the findings of in depth interviews with seven students and explores themes that arose from using video within a mobile device to enhance learning and student engagement.
