Tech Talk Tuesdays: Playing with my iPad

February 24, 2012

When:- Tuesday 28th February, 4-5pm Melbourne Australia time (gmt+11)

About the session: Penny Bentley recently acquired an iPad and ‘played’ with itwhilst on a camping holiday with her family.  Of high priority was to find several apps for efficient “work flow”…with Evernote as her central hub for file storage and transfer via the “cloud”. Penny wanted to se if she could create work in the “field” and share it in real time using social media…mainly Twitter and Facebook

Being in a beautiful, natural environment she was also keen to play with audio, video, photography as well as text. The iPad was used to check the internet for cricket scores (to keep hubby happy), using Face B ook daily to keep in touch with Ms 21, and Mr 18 grabbed it whenever he could to keep in touch with his mates on Facebook.

With a 3G connection students and teachers could add another dimension to their excursions out in the field or even around the school in places where wireless drops out.

About our presenter:Penny Bentley is an innovative Australian Teacher who currently tutors students, online and face to face, in Maths, Science and Computer skills. She is fascinated by the potential of mobile devices to enhance student learning and passionate about mentoring teachers as they increase technology use in the classroom.
