This article describes the aspects of iPad use which preservice teachers perceived as beneficial in the forces and motion unit. The results revealed that at many stages of this process, the preservice teachers used iPads to abstract ideas from physical experience. Preservice teachers’ responses showed that these experiences were perceived as valuable, both in terms of an understanding of the underlying content and completion of the project as a whole. Additionally, participants described how the iPad influenced instructional efficiency, engagement, and social learning. The authors recommend that it is highly relevant to the development of preservice teachers’ critical pedagogical skills that they confront and discuss both the strengths and weakness of the iPads for various purposes, as well as analyze the way the device shapes student interaction.
