This presentation is intended to examine the impact of a university class partnership with a rural school classroom as well as demonstrate Google Hangouts and iPad workstations aligned with Common Core Standards. The partnership dubbed Project Engage was a collaborative endeavor that combines teaching and learning with innovative technology. Project Engage comprised of three university professors, five teacher candidates and an elementary classroom teacher that joined forces to launch the initiative. This initiative led to a desire by teacher candidates to conduct research and publish. Project Engage provided fertile ground for numerous research opportunities that led teacher candidates toward designing a survey and gathering data that is currently being analyzed.
