We’ll I’ve finished the testing for the use of the iPad in my next workshop “effective ways of using objective testing in your teaching and learning” – thanks for input from others 🙂
Basically the iPad will do all – the session plan is available from: http://wolseyweb.ucs.ac.uk/blogs/elevate/?page_id=412
- I’ll present using Keynote (powerpoint) (activity 2 & 3)
- I’ll use iThoughtsHD to collect user thoughts / inputs (activity 1 & 4)
- I’ll access web sites via Expedition (activity 3)
- I’ll use the video app for video (activity 3 – walk through of the user experience of using a quiz / turning point activity – creating a a quiz, and a turning point question)
The key is, things have moved so fast … the iThoughtsHD version now displays via VGA. So I can finally use my mind mapping software to collect ideas and then upload to a public area in dropbox.com. Hence the attendees can get the outcomes at the end of the session.
Why do it this way? Why not just log onto a computer? Well, firstly, because I can, secondly (and more importantly), I want to work up an authentic use of them in supporting staff development workshops in different locations. This will form a story for our emerging iPad project.
So, workshop at the end of Feb
