I’ve been substituting the iPad where ever I can for all my classes. At first it was a bit difficult because there are some things that pen and paper do better than the iPad.
The majority of my classes this semester focus a lot on group work so using the iPad in conjunction with Google Docs has been extremely helpful. Editing documents on Google Drive is as easy as 1-2-3 but when it comes to entering data for my psychology lab class, tasks can be a bit difficult. For this data entry assignment my group members had to input responses from surveys into a Google Sheet using the app Sheets. Sheets is a great app but I do not understand why Google split up its applications. The group members in our group with laptops finished input all their data 4 minutes before the rest of us using tablets. Something. That might fix this minor annoyance would be arrow keys when using Sheets or any excel- esque app.
Overall the iPad has been a great addition to my backpack.
