iPad Project

Posted Friday, 7 September 2012, 06:40

I was due to give a PechaKucha on Tues 11th Sept on our iPad Project at Manchester Medical School. Unfortunately I have had to withdraw - ironically because I have to give out iPads to our year 3 students! The pilot has been extremely successful, so we are mainstreaming this year, giving out 1500 devices over the next few weeks. For anyone interested in the project I recommend you go see my colleague Hilary Dexter's short paper on Wednesday at 9.00. I have uploaded my presentation as a PDF for info and I will be around on the Wednesday - I'd be interested to talk to others with similar plans/projects.

ThanksTim, very interesting. I had seen some of the videos produced by your students on the web about the use of their iPads. Very interesting. I am leading an iPad deployment project at Leeds University Business School (U of Leeds) looking at ways of integrating these devices into the International Business curriculum to develop skills. Could we chat on Wednesday during the coffee break?
