Roane State Engage Campaign

Q: I teach for Roane State Community College. How can I get an iPad to use in my classroom?

A:  Roane State full-time faculty who are interested in teaching with an iPad can request one here: Request an iPad

We will be ordering in bulk so interested faculty should register before Monday, August 26th. Once the iPads have been inventoried and added to the RSCC owned network, you will be notified that your iPad is ready to be picked up.

Q: What is required of me?

A:  Play with the iPad for a semester and think about how it might help you in the classroom.  CTAT and the Library will be offering workshops and app shares throughout the semester to support your discovery of new tools. You can keep the iPad as long as you teach full-time at RScc and agree to share your classroom experiences with your dean and colleagues. More information about the process for sharing your experiences will be provided in Spring 2014.

Q: Who should I contact for assistance?

A: Consult with CTAT for ideas on how you can incorporate the iPad into your classroom.

The library assists by purchasing apps. To discover and request apps, go to http://libguides.roanestate.edu/appdirectory. The library also has iPad classroom carts

Additional resources can be found at Mobile Learning @ Roane State:  http://libguides.roanestate.edu/roanemobile 

Q: What if I don’t find the iPad useful?

A:  Not every plan works out the way we intend. Sometimes projects fail. Sometimes they succeed in unexpected ways. The goal of this project is to provide faculty with the tools and support to experiment with new ways to engage students in their own learning. We will learn from each other and share what works to help everyone.

Q: I teach part-time. Can I apply for an iPad?

A: Full-time faculty are invited to submit requests for iPads through the Engage Campaign.  Adjunct faculty need to contact CTAT via CTATmailbox@roanestate.edu to discuss availability on a semester by semester basis.

Q: How long do I keep the iPad I receive through this process?

A: Participating faculty can keep their iPad as long as they teach full-time at RSCC and agree to share their classroom experiences with their dean and colleagues. More information about the process for sharing your experiences will be provided in Spring 2014.
