Abstract


The 2012-2013 academic year has seen the beginning of a national initiative in the United Arab Emirates to equip all students in federal universities/colleges with iPads, and to make use of this mobile device in teaching and learning. Within the context of this national initiative, each federal institution (Zayed University, UAE University and the Higher Colleges of Technology) has begun to implement iPads in its curriculum, and to gather data about this implementation to inform further development. In this paper, representatives of the three federal institutions map out the research approach which they are taking to investigate the progress of the iPad initiative.
