February 7th, 2012 iPad Meeting

Hello iPad Users!!  We had our first iPad meeting of the semester on February 7th via the Pace videoconferencing system between PLV and NYC.  It was a very good session and here are some of the highlights:

John Ceballos from Educational Media NYC shared his iPad experiences with us and also recommended many different useful educational apps.  Here is a link & recap of his specific presentation and how to access future recordings:

Michelle Pulaski-Behling also shared what she is currently doing in her media and politics class here at Pace.  Her students have the privilege of using iPads during each class to research and keep up with the newest trends in the country and world.  Michelle pre-loaded many useful apps that the students refer to during their class sessions.

We are working very closely with her (and Apple) to come up with the easiest way to keep these “shared”  iPads organized and easy to sync because as you can tell, the engaging type of learning that iPads enable has been a success thus far not only in her class, but others as well here at Pace.  Furthermore, it is a very exciting way to learn at any level of your educational career.

Our next meeting (March 21st, 2012 @ 11:15am) will include reps from Apple, so we can ask some more in depth/specific questions and see what they have brewing.  Rumor has it the iPad 3 is being released in March.  Stay tuned!!
