Take a listen: Dr. Pianfetti talks about this seminar series and what it means to her as an educator
Please join us and see how the iPad is making learning more engaging and accessible than ever. Today students are learning in more places than just the classroom, and educators are finding new ways to reach them anytime, anywhere. During this seminar, we will focus on how the iPad is beginning to change higher education. With numerous education applications, as well as strategies for textbooks, research and integration, the iPad is becoming a tremendous tool for 21st Century Learning. We will spend time talking about current uses of the iPads in higher education as well as learning about the Apps that are native to the iPad, and investigate some of the resources that are available on iTunes U. We will also look at some of the Apps that are available from 3rd Party developers that enhance teaching and learning in the classroom.
