One approach to setting up the iPad for shared use among multiple users | Emerging Education Technology

One approach to setting up the iPad for shared use among multiple users | Emerging Education Technology | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it
The iPad is inherently an individualized device - 'Our Pad' makes it easier to work around that.

 

A growing number of faculty and staff members at The College of Westchester have been using iPads and we’re always learning more about their functionality and potential uses. One idea that comes up from time to time is the possibility of using them in multi-user situations. Perhaps we could have iPads available to loan for use within the Library, or maybe a few people in a department or work group might want to share the use of one?

RM Education iPad lesson ideas

RM Education iPad lesson ideas | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

Available via http://www.rm.com/_RMVirtual/Media/Downloads/ipad_lessonideas.pdf:

a 21 page pdf booklet from RM education with inquiry based lesson ideas, objectives and workflows around using various Apps and the iPad to achieve the learning outcomes.

e.g: “I’m a math teacher and I want to test my pupils’ understanding of key concepts explained in class. I give them an assignment ( individually or in pairs): they should imagine they are planning a school disco in aid of charity. Their task is to identify and research the possible costs, plan the budget for the event and answer some questions such as : What are the three main costs, what is the correct ticket price, how
many attendees should we have to break even and what is the value of the funds raised.”

Then goes on to outline an iPad App workflow for this learning task.

Microsoft Office for iPad to Launch on November 10 | PadGadget | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it
We have been anticipating it for months. Rumors have been circulating throughout the entire first half of 2012. First, we learned that Microsoft had submitted a series of apps to the App Store for approval. Then, we thought we’d see an official launch alongside the new iPad. Even as recent as a week ago, we discovered that the company will be ready this Fall. Today, The Daily is reporting that Microsoft’s ultimate business package for iOS, Office Mobile, will launch on November 10.

The Best iPad Styluses [Best Of] | Cult of Mac | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

“If you see a stylus they failed.” That might be everybody’s favorite Steve Jobs quote about touch screens, but the fact is the finger is terrible at both drawing and writing — just look at your kid’s scrawlings up on the refrigerator door if you don’t believe me.

If you want to make pictures and words that the rest of the world can recognize as such, you need a little help. Luckily, iPad accessory makers also ignored Jobs’ complaints and set out to fill the world with wonderful iPad pens. Here are the best you can buy."

The fastest high-speed Internet service is courtesy of OnLive Desktop Plus. The “plus” is a 1-gigabit-a-second Net connection with the ability to view Flash videos on your iPad.

 

Your iPad can’t play Flash videos on the Web. Mine can.

Your copy of Windows needs constant updating and patching and protection against viruses and spyware. Mine is always clean and always up-to-date.

No, I’m not some kind of smug techno-elitist; you can have all of that, too. All you have to do is sign up for a radical iPad service called OnLive Desktop Plus.
