The presentation will focus on the data and analysis collected from iPad 1:1 programmes that span across 22 post primary-schools in Ireland; 16 of these schools will use iPads with students and teachers, six of the schools will initially use them for teachers only. The combined size of those programmes is 670 teachers and 1,150 students. The study will establish a baseline of both measurements and will measure differences, and their causes, over a period of several months. The outcomes will enable an evidence-based approach to technology professional development and the provision of support structures for educators.
