Teaching and Learning with the iPad
This session focuses on the latest research about how iPads can be used in the classroom. We will cover use cases from institutions across the country, academic content and iTunes U, digital textbook resources from iBook and Inkling, projecting with VGA adapters and document cameras, polling students and colleagues with the free app Socrative, and presenting from iPad with keynote or Prezi.
There are no prerequisites for this session; it is a demo-based presentation and is not hands-on. However, participants who have iPads are welcome to bring them to follow along.
