Abstract

Classrooms that rely only on textbooks and printed materials are slowly becoming archaic in today’s modern world. Technology is changing the way students of all ages learn. The newest iteration in the technology world is the use of smaller, tablet style computers. As these devices proliferate and become cheaper than traditional computers, using them for educational purposes will become more and more commonplace. The ability to download applications, as well as the wealth of available applications, offers a tremendous opportunity for teachers and students. Anyone can develop applications for such devices, which can be of concern to educators who are searching for appropriate and useful applications for students. Due to the fact that tablet devices have exploded into popularity in the past two years as well as the explosion of application development, very little research has been done to evaluate the instructional design and readability of the apps. This presentation will discuss ways to evaluate applications to ensure the proper learning outcomes can be obtained.
