Tech Talk Tuesdays: Playing with my iPad
When:- Tuesday 28th February, 4-5pm Melbourne Australia time (gmt+11)
About the session: Penny Bentley recently acquired an iPad and ‘played’ with itwhilst on a camping holiday with her family. Of high priority was to find several apps for efficient “work flow”…with Evernote as her central hub for file storage and transfer via the “cloud”. Penny wanted to se if she could create work in the “field” and share it in real time using social media…mainly Twitter and Facebook
Being in a beautiful, natural environment she was also keen to play with audio, video, photography as well as text. The iPad was in high demand amongst the family.
The application to the classroom: With a 3G connection students and teachers could add another dimension to their excursions out in the field or even around the school in places where wireless drops out.
