This is awesome.  Use digital text for discussion with the class on your iPad and the academic can see what the class discussion is, and can also interact...

Apple's Official Guide to Teaching with Apps

Apple's Official Guide to Teaching with Apps | Educational technology | Scoop.it

"This may be news to you (it was to us), but Apple has a guide for teaching with apps. Called “Using iOS Apps for Teaching & Learning,” it’s 8 pages long and really, honestly isn’t as self-embracing and superificial as you’d expect. Of course, it’s only 8 pages and acts more as an overview than the book, PD, and years of experience it actually requires to get it just right."
