iPads for UAS Sitka Faculty

23 10 2013

ipadFLC_croppedSome of you have been using iPad’s that we purchased a few years ago for faculty check-out. These devices have supported your teaching, helped lighten your load when you travel, helped you take notes during conferences, provided a way to check mail, compile data, research your content area, and more. In short, they have become indispensable. In fact, when I asked you to turn them in so we could give you new ones, we heard more than a few gasps! However, you were willing to turn them in to upgrade to a retinal display model, more memory, better processing, the addition of FaceTime capability etc. When we got the new iPads, we also required you to submit a report about how you used the iPad in your teaching and Personal Learning Environment. We have really enjoyed reading your reports and hearing all the creative ways this device has become essential to you.

If you do not have an iPad yet and would like to check one out, please email Mary Purvis. You will need to submit a proposal for its use, and then you can begin using it. We still have a few left – first come, first serve!

To pique your interest in how helpful an iPad can be to your teaching, read this report, graciously shared by Gayle Hammons.

Interested in trying out a Chromebook or Microsoft Surface? We have a few display models you can check out for a limited time. Contact Mary for details!
