I’m so glad to read and hear about all of the exciting things Dyson faculty and students are doing with the iPads just in the past month. We’re planning to hold some user group meetings in early December on both campuses so we can share more ideas in person. As soon as we have the dates set – and hopefully someone from Apple to join us – we will get the word out. In the meantime, please keep sharing your ideas, strategies and questions here.
There’s a lot of excitement in Dyson right now because we just distributed 20 iPads to Dyson faculty who have some truly innovative ideas about how to use iPads to support the teaching and learning here at Pace. I hope that this blog will be a great way of sharing apps and ideas as we all learn how to use this new tool. We will also be setting up some user group meetings soon so stay tuned.
I installed both Pages and Keynote recently and think that they are both worth checking out as alternatives to Word and PowerPoint. Pages, in particular, has made it easier for me to manage my email on the iPad. And just in case you haven’t done this yet, please check out settings to set up your Pace or other email accounts to make it easier to manage.
What is everyone else doing with their iPads? I just installed the kindle app and have found it fairly easy to adjust to reading a novel on the iPad. What do others think?
