President Joseph I. Castro has launched the Fresno State Tablet Program with the help of 40 Faculty Fellows on Jan. 13, 2014. The Fellows were nominated by the deans from all campus divisions and volunteered to participate in the inaugural endeavor.
They will participate in focused professional development activities between this spring semester and the intensive summer training. The Fellows courses offered in the fall 2014 semester will be delivered to a diverse, multi-disciplinary group of more than 1,000 students – from freshmen to graduate students.
Their training will be realized in the creation of a re-imagined educational experience, with courses that will advance the transformative potential of technology in our classrooms.
“I’ve been asked many times why I am so interested in introducing tablets,” said Castro.“I explain that I am keenly interested in making sure our students have the tools they need to succeed and that they are well prepared for careers that are become increasingly dependent upon technology.”
