How the iPad can make you into a painting master – or almost | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it
How creative are you? When the Apple iPad Pro was released last autumn, I interviewed several artists who had just started using the advanced tablet and its clever, super-precise Pencil. The results they came up with were phenomenal and used some of the inexpensive, or free, apps available for general use on the iPad.

Peter Mellow's insight:

Using this now with a standard iPad. Works great! Previous apps that I have used to turn my ipad into a 4th monitor ran over bluetooth or Wifi and lagged a bit. The refresh rate with this app is great. Highly reccommended.

For kids, an iPad before surgery may be as effective as a sedative

For kids, an iPad before surgery may be as effective as a sedative | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

"Our study showed that child and parental anxiety before anaesthesia are equally blunted by midazolam or use of the iPad," Dr. Dominique Chassard said in a statement released in the run-up to the release of the group's research findings. 

"However, the quality of induction of anaesthesia, as well as parental satisfaction, were judged better in the iPad group. Use of iPads or other tablet devices is a non-pharmacologic tool which can reduce perioperative stress without any sedative effect in paediatric ambulatory surgery."

For students, the iPad is the ultimate computer - @Mashable

For students, the iPad is the ultimate computer - @Mashable | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it
BROOKLYN, New York – I’m sitting on the floor at The Academy of Talented Scholars (PS 682) in Bensonhurst, watching kindergarteners create robots on an iPad.

It’s one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen, and I don’t even like children.

The exercise is part of the curriculum led by co-teachers Stacy Butsikares and Allison Bookbinder, focused on helping the 5- and 6-year-old students come up with ways to solve problems.

The first step is to identify a problem happening in the school. The kindergarteners come up with ideas like kids horsing around in the lunch line, or not throwing trash away properly, or making too much noise at recess. Students are instructed to create a robot that could solve the problem, and draw the robot on a piece of paper.

Once the robot is sketched out, the real fun begins. Using the app The Robot Factory, these pint-sized problem-solvers bring their robot ideas to life.
