Seton Hill recognized by Apple for use of mobile technology
Seton Hill University has been recognized as an Apple Distinguished School for 2017–19 for its efforts to integrate mobile technology throughout the campus.
Apple reserves the designation for programs that are “recognized centers of educational excellence and leadership,” the university said in a release.
This is the fifth time Apple has recognized Seton Hill since the Catholic university in Greensburg created its Mobile Learning @ the Hill program in 2010.
“Over the past seven years, Seton Hill has provided the right technology tools that students need to fully engage in the digital world, and our faculty have developed pedagogy that encourages using those tools in new and exciting ways,” said Seton Hill President Mary C. Finger.
“The use of mobile technology at Seton Hill enables the university community to explore new ways to use technology to enrich and expand the teaching and learning experience for all learners,” said Mary Spataro, director of the Innovative Teaching and Learning Center at Seton Hill. “Faculty use mobile technology to enlighten and illuminate their classroom lessons and engage students in learning in compelling ways.”
