Location: EV1 241 Notes: Open to faculty (registration is required)
Description: A tablet PC such as Apple's iPad, Microsoft's Surface, or Samsung's Galaxy can be used instead of an overhead projector, whiteboard, or smartboard to deliver presentations. PDFs, images, or slides are imported into an app -- such as 2Screens -- and displayed via the classroom's projector onto a screen. The instructor can then annotate or sketch on the PDFs, images, or slides in real time on the tablet PC. If the tablet PC is connected wirelessly, the instructor is free to walk around the classroom, with the tablet in hand, while delivering the presentation. In this session, Thorsten Dieckmann will explain how he uses an iPad to deliver presentations to his chemistry students. He will also discuss several other apps that indirectly support this use of the iPad, including iAnnotate, Dropbox, Goodreader, iZip, Polaris Office, Cloud-On, and Notes Plus.
Learning Outcomes. After the session, participants will be able to:
- use an iPad to annotate and deliver presentations to students
- identify a file management platform that meets their needs
