Typing in the Age of iPads: New technologies are helping overcome issues of speed, accuracy, and screen space.

Typing in the Age of iPads: New technologies are helping overcome issues of speed, accuracy, and screen space. | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

"Do a Google search on the question, 'Does anybody teach keyboarding anymore?' and you'll find out that--at least in the blogosphere--it's as dead a subject as Latin, and only slightly more relevant than cursive writing. Today, it's not uncommon for teachers to be expected to fit keyboarding instruction into an already crowded curriculum. But in the age of touchscreens and smartphones, typing drills on a traditional QWERTY keyboard may not be the best use of anybody's time. Instead, new technologies are helping overcome the vexing issues of speed, accuracy, and screen space that are the consequence of importing standard typing techniques to mobile technologies."

Tony Vincent's Learning in Hand - Project Based Learning | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

Schools are discovering that handhelds like iPod touch and iPad make great learning tools. In fact, handhelds can play a big part in project based learning. Not only do projects motivate students because they use exciting handheld technology, but they also lend themselves to student voice and choice.

First look: Using Adobe Photoshop Touch on iPad | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

"As a working professional, I wear many different hats — instructor, photographer, consultant, and digital media specialist. My photography focuses primarily on working with special-needs kids while shooting on location. It's a different process compared with taking children's portraits in a studio. When working with families with special-needs kids, I have different challenges, but the work is just as rewarding."
