This presentation tells the story of an experiment to make a First-Year Experience (FYE) course more engaging and enjoyable through the integration of iPads into the curriculum and the infusion of information-literacy throughout the course. Students analyzed 4 films from classic horror cinema and created cultural-historical documentaries about them. Students worked in groups of 4 or 5 on iPads using the Adobe Voice app and learned how to locate and evaluate sources, incorporate sources into their projects, and cite them properly. An exemplary documentary will be screened for the audience.
