Dr. Robert Blaine, Jackson State University's interim associate dean of the College of Liberal Arts, has been named an Apple Distinguished Educator.

Blaine was informed of his selection by Maxx Judd, worldwide program manager for ADE.
...
Blaine is one of about 20 educators chosen worldwide this year. The program began in 1994 when Apple, Inc., recognized K-12 and higher education pioneers who were using a variety of Apple products to transform teaching and learning in powerful ways.
As an ADE, Blaine joins a select group of more than 2,000 education professionals worldwide committed to the promise of educational technology to improve teaching and learning.

I think it speaks to the leadership role in innovation that the university is taking, and I'm only one small piece of that," Blaine said.
Blaine has been on faculty at JSU, a historically black university in Mississippi, since 2004. As director of the Quality Enhancement Plan, which is a facet of the university's accreditation through the Southern Association for Schools and Colleges, he was involved in research a few years ago that gave rise to a plan to improve student learning, Global Education through Analytical Reasoning.
The GEAR plan called for the creation of a learning environment that included redesigned courses written as e-texts. After the implementation, educators found that students who owned mobile devices performed at higher levels than students without the devices. Blaine and a team of other JSU faculty and staff worked to level the playing field for all students by launching the 2012 iPad Technology Advantage Initiative. As part of the program, the entire JSU freshman class was given an iPad, and the device was integrated into the curriculum. The program also tracks student progress.
"The research showed that students who used mobile devices in the curriculum were already generally academically enhanced. The students we needed to reach the most didn't have access to the technology, at first," Blaine said.
