As an eLearning leader, one of the most common complaints I receive from staff is that “it is really hard to stay organized with the iPad! Everything is all over the place!” I could not disagree more.

iPad University: IT Lessons From College Pilot -- InformationWeek

iPad University: IT Lessons From College Pilot -- InformationWeek | Education and the digital generation | Scoop.it
I think this is a move worth considerable thought, for all levels of education pre-school up.

Incoming freshmen are given iPads at no cost, while graduate students and part-time undergraduates can purchase the devices at half price, $250. These tablets belong to the students, so students are advised to visit a nearby Apple Store to resolve problems. That means less of a support burden for LIU IT staff. To date, the initiative has reached about 10,000 students and educators.

My challenge is this: Share one or two of these at Staff Meetings over the next few weeks. Make sure you turn up well prepared. Have your question ready to go. btw, Do create your own questions as they will be more meaningful. Are these ideas too big? too different? If yes, then how is it that they are not too big or too different in all situations. What are you (we) missing?

I've had mixed thoughts on QR codes, but I am posting this here as I am keen to find the time to engage with them (by which I mean make use of them)  both in the home environment and in school.

When you contemplate filling in a username and password box does one part of your mind immediately take off on some erratic highspeed search while another part just claims that life has got to be easier than this, like, I wanted access to this 5 minutes ago, I've not got the time it takes to reset, access email, and create a new password I'm likely to forget before I even get to use it?
