Week 2: Apple iPad Seminar in Class

Week two is upon us and now is when we will really get things moving. I want to share some general thoughts on your posts and where we might want to go from here. We will reflect briefly on any lingering issues from week one and try to wrap up the idea of the Internet as a disruptor in general. This will let us set the stage for our first deep dive into our themes, starting with community. I will also introduce you to your team assignments and get you rolling on the Team Contract.

During class some people from Apple will be here to do a hands on session with us to help us get the most out of the iPads this semester. I am keenly interested in us really unpacking the affordances of the iPad as a tool to support learning and student work flow in general. I have asked Apple to focus mostly on how the iPad can support content creation of all types. In addition to the Apple team, there will be some folks here from around campus to learn a bit more about the iPad.

  1. Great – I’m looking forward to it! I already know what I want to learn how to do:

    What’s the easiest and fastest way to record video on the iPad and upload it to You Tube?
    It sounds simple, but I tried to do this last semester but the upload process was SUPER slow and it failed several times before finally going through… maybe it’s easier now. I’ll test it out before Thursday – last time I tried was several months ago.
