The Office of the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning's iPads for Learning Program investigates the extent to which the use of iPads can potentially impact teaching, learning, and research when applied in the service of specific goals. Each quarter the program committee supports a select number of Stanford faculty and instructor proposals that demonstrate the potential to make a contribution to Stanford's understanding of using iPads to support teaching, learning, and research.
