Abstract

In Fall 2005, a laptop initiative was implemented for the Institute for Teacher Education (ITE) program at the College of Education (COE). This paper delineates the laptop initiative objectives and examines ITE faculty's readiness to integrate laptops in their teaching and their perception of the impacts of the laptop initiative on teaching and learning. Based on an online faculty survey, it was determined that the COE was successful in preparing ITE faculty for using laptops in the classroom. Overall, ITE faculty members were satisfied with the types and quality of support services provided. Researchers concluded that the laptop initiative has somewhat positively impacted levels of interaction, students' engagement and learning.
