Integrating iPads and Tablets into Library Services

Part 1 of 2-Part Webinar, presented March 14, 2013 by Rebecca K. Miller, Heather Moorfield-Lang, and Carolyn Meier.
Anthony Beal's insight:

Two presentations from the American Library Association on all aspects of using tablet computers in libraries. Very comprehensive and include lots of ideas for usage, apps, sample policies and user agreements and case studies from many different types of libraries. Part two contains the academic library case studies. American bias but lots of useful general information.

"A few weeks ago I sent out an email to MEDLIB-L asking for librarians who are circulating iPads to contact me off list to answer some questions. I was really killing about 3 birds with one stone. Not only did iMedicalApps want me to write a story about libraries loaning iPads, but I wanted to investigate the idea for our library, and I wanted to share the information for others on this blog.

 

A lot of librarians got back to me and I want to thank everyone who responded."

Why Go 1:1 iPad?

Why Go 1:1 iPad? | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

In a response to a well written and thoughtful post that I recently read by @jmcconville1000, "Why the iPad is bad for education", I felt compelled to respond from my personal experience of rolling out a cart of 30 iPads in a shared high school environment.

 

Fundamentally I believe that an iPad can neither be good or bad. All it can ever be is an iPad. I argue instead, that when used effectively and with specific goals in mind, iPads can have a positive impact on education. Seeing that schools are investing money on these devices, the perspective to adopt is not a combative one, but rather one that explores how to effectively integrate the devices. Whether a school is 1:1, or there is a shared iPad cart, the devices can be used effectively.

Have you checked out a book from your public library and read it on your iPad yet? You didn’t know you could do that? It’s possible for library patrons to borrow books from their public library, read them on the iPad’s gorgeous screen, all without leaving home or ever having to worry about an overdue library book.

 

The majority of public libraries offer digital media to their patrons. As e-readers and tablets become more popular, it is likely that the amount of digital content available to readers will increase, as will public libraries’ commitment to invest in digital content. (USA)

An introductory guide to iPads for Teachers | The Whiteboard Blog | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

"I’m delivering some iPad training to a school tomorrow, so thought it might be useful to collate some of the links I’ve been putting together for the session.


The session is concentrating mainly on teachers using the iPads for their own professional use, rather than being used as a classroom resource, but a lot of the apps below will be suitable for use by students too. I’ll do another post sometime of great apps for different subject areas.


Here’s some of the useful apps I’d recommend investigating. Some are free, others the price of a pint or so. Links are to the UK version of iTunes so other readers may need to do a search in the App Store to find the version for their region."
