There will be a “Lunch and Learn” session on the iPad on Nov. 15 to discuss instructional and administrative uses, must have apps, must have accessories, what’s to love and what’s to hate, etc. This is open to all faculty and staff. The goal will be for those using the iPad to share how they are using it and gain a better understanding of new applications. Those considering purchasing an iPad for personal, instructional or work purposes will gain a better knowledge of this device and hopefully make a more informed purchase decision.
Sample of discussion items include:
iPad General Information – What is it, what are the options, what are the costs
iPad at Work – Instructional and administrative uses, benefits and drawbacks
Must Have Applications – Dropbox, Kindle, Pages, Numbers, Flip board, etc.
Must Have Accessories – Case, VGA connector, Bluetooth Keyboard
Things iPad Can’t Do – Flash, Multitask, Skype with video, etc.
