iPad reflexion – Week 4 – Shady

On the positive side, I’m really enjoying just bringing the iPad to class.  All the content is there, it’s easy to use, it helps me collaborate with my team-mates, I can get up to do a presentation without having to carry anything else other than the iPad.

On the negative side, because i’m not too familiar with it, I feel it slows me down when I’m trying to move fast through Google Drive.  I find it cumbersome to name, sort, and share documents.

The most surprising thing so far is the fact that I have been doing really well without a keyboard.  I was set that I would need one when I first got the iPad, but so far, I have been working really well with the native iPad keyboard.

  1. You should challenge yourself to using the iPad for work for a week or two. I’d love to hear your reactions after trying to do that. One of the reasons I wanted everyone to have them was to report on how they could be used in every day life — and to “occupy” them to better see how they fit into various workflows.

  2. Typing has gotten easier for me to. I definitely miss the tactile response of typing on a keyboard.
