    Chronicle article on iPads and Mobile Technology 

    If you can’t access it, email me and I’ll send it to you. The gist is that intention is better than actuality. Most efforts are in fits and starts–with some winding up dead in the water. And moving to mobile technology means building your wireless capacity.

      This is a very interesting article. The emphasis on student-driven techniques seems key. We need to be ready to change course on how we are implementing these devices starting in September.

    I’ve played around a bit with the programs Tom showed us Monday and even passed them on to a friend who teaches statistics online. I can see how both could be very helpful for working collaboratively. Puppet Pals so far has stayed in the “this is too much fun” personal category rather than migrate over to the “professional” one, but I could see that as well (past the fog of Monty Python memories). Thanks for that one, Sam.

    In this morning’s Chronicle there is an article about using Google maps to map actions in novels, and one of the provided links is to Emory Universities Center for Interactive Teaching http://cet.emory.edu/ecit/ It has some interesting examples of how faculty in a variety of departments are using technology (not just iPads).

    Also, are there some best practices for battery maintenance? I now know, not to plug it in each night and to let it get to at least 40% of battery usage. But I’m not clear on the difference between regular recharging when it gets that low and what others were saying about monthly recharging.

    Just tried this and I’m impressed I… 

    Just tried this, and I’m impressed.  I held the iPad about 4 inches from my mouth and tried to speak clearly.  It got just about everything correct.  I read a long sentence that included commas and acronyms (IPEDS and CIP).  It put in the punctuation I told it to and capitalized the acronyms.  I do need to work on my pronunciation of the word “and” though.

    So for anyone who likes to speak their notes, this seems to be a nice app.  And easy to use.

      …so it recongizes a delicate southern ‘belle’ drawl. Nice!

    I appreciate all the notes and reminders. I haven’t had time to play with/learn how to make use of the apps I’ve downloaded, but what else are weekend for? I still get lost or can’t remember or figure out how to do things, but I expect that with more use, those problems will go away.

    I was able to get my gravatar (such an ugly word) to change. I thought I’d go with my cat since my dog usually gets more press.

        Theresa, when you’re logged into WordPress, you’ll see a gray bar at the top of this webpage — on the far left is “My Account” — hover on that and click “Edit my Profile”. If that doesn’t work, just let me know. 🙂
