No Noise. Using the iPad in a Quiet Classroom

Lisa Smith, English

Worried that the iPad is a potential distraction for students who are already seemingly short on attention span?  Discover some ways that the iPad can be used in a useful but quiet manner in a traditional reading and writing classroom.  Specific apps will be discussed.

Tech Talks are opportunities for USD faculty and staff members to gather for one hour to learn about a teaching technology from other faculty showcasing their innovations. Factors to consider in adopting the technology are discussed. Coffee and biscotti will be provided.
