Accounting Technology Requirements

Accounting Majors at UAFS – Electronic Device Policy 

Policy Statement: All accounting majors enrolled in upper-level Accounting classes in Fall of 2014 will be required to have their own Apple iPad for use in these classes.

WHAT IS REQUIRED?

At a minimum, you must have an Apple iPad2 or newer tablet with

  • 16 GB or more of memory/storage
  • Wifi enabled
  • iTunes account for purchase of apps required for classroom use

Some of the key reasons to adopt the Apple iPads for classroom use include the following:

  • students need to be familiar with tablet technology used by accountants and other business professionals
  • students using iPads in the pilot program experienced a higher level of engagement with the material than in previous semesters. 
  • Students can benefit from taking notes and writing out homework problems by hand which has been proven to improve learning
  • Students will be able to utilize a popular productivity tool and explore new ways to use these devices. 
  • Students will be able to save significant cost of textbooks through the use of e-books and still be able to highlight text and take margin notes like you do with hard copy books.
