iPad 2s have arrived!

The iPad just made its debut in our Freshman Seminar classes. Our students are learning many different productivity apps, including iAnnotate PDF, which has allowed the students to annotate documents used in class. Other free and purchased apps for these Classroom iPads include: Evernote, Quickoffice, Notes Plus, Shakespeare in Bits, ShowMe, Google Books, Overdrive and more. During a recent "Orientation to the iPad" lesson taught by yours truly, the librarian, we took photographs of ourselves and our peers and imported them into the app Popplet Lite to create character maps. Students can now translate the skills that they learned and create maps based on characters in books.
