Today was a nice opening to both meeting other people in the college and thinking about how course objectives or classroom challenges might be addresses effectively using various tools. I appreciate the emphasis on sound pedagogy, rather than on the flash of technology.
The collective parts AND the one-on-one time and attention is really marvelous -- and as Dave suggested this is a rare opportunity to take the time to think through and explore possibilities.
I am concerned about finding simple ways to facilitate image and text sharing via iPads, with the ability to create a collaborative final project at the end. Many possibilities,none seems quite right, yet.
