With the introduction of tablet technology, faculty began asking questions about when, where, and how tables might enhance curriculum opportunities for student learning and faculty teaching strategies beyond their use as personal digital devices and smartphones (Swan, Smith, Frisby, Shaffer, & Hason-Zalot). Personal digital devices (PDDs), including smartphones, had been used by nursing students for the past five years. The purpose of this study was to evaluate how tablet technology affected student and faculty teaching-learning processes and outcomes in an accelerated, pre-licensure baccalaureate nursing program.
