Apollo Horizon 2 Overhead Projector [Reprinted by author from]

To this day I remain a big fan of the overhead projector.  I truly believe it was more effective a tool for teaching than the projected Powerpoint slides will ever be.…

Is the iPad the Correct Tool to Aid Learning in Education?

Link to Original Blog Post click here

Many educators have asked – “Are iPads the correct tool to aid learning in education?” Having read several articles and well as witnessing first hand the implementation of iPad programs in several K12 educational establishments. I still don’t have a definitive answer, but I suppose it depends on the goals of your educational establishment and the age group of learners and what they need to…

Parallels Desktop 7 on iPad 2

Hi all,


As a longtime Macbook/Pro user, I have made good use of Parallels Desktop to run a virtual Windows environment on my Macbook. This has worked well, as QMS is a Windows based environment.

I have recently been debating on what is the next step for computer technology in my classroom. I have been comparing tablets to the nth degree! Based on the fact our school network is Windows based I have been focusing on Windows based tablets from Acer and Asus.…

BIG is the new small

In the last few days I've been test

driving the new Apple iPad and I have a few thoughts about it as a

product and an experience. In the interest of full disclosure, I'll

admit upfront to being an Apple fan of many years. I've had an iPhone

for some time and have marked well it's strengths and weaknesses as a

phone and a computer and I find that the iPad with wifi delivers an

experience not unlike that of the iPhone. The major ah ha…

Kindling Interest in the iPad

Our school uses the Blackboard CE Learning Management System, and my online philosophy courses are heavily dependent on threaded discussions.

Rather than stare at a computer screen all day, I've taken to compiling all the discussion comments, pasting them into a Word document, then sending the document to my Kindle. In a few seconds I have the complete discussion, and I can add notes and grades from my easy chair. The e-Ink screen is easy on the eyes, too.

When I'm finished,… Continue

I teach middle school PE and, as most of you know, PE teachers spend most of their days away from their offices and thus, desks. Today, my PE cohort and I were talking about ways to make OUR lives easier in our outdoor classroom. We began discussing what we might be able to do with the new Apple iPad. We use an online grading system called Schoolloop. We would be able to access that instantly, without having to write notes in a grade book and then transfer it online. We could show demonstration… Continue

Design as Experience

Alright, here's an interesting thought in the wake of the roll out of the iPad. When we are discussing a design of any kind, we are talking about a design of a full experience. Any product cannot be thought of merely as a product. All products provide some type of service. The user experience with the product, ie the production of the service, is merely the centerpiece of the overall experience with the product. That experience begins with the user first hearing of it and extends through the… Continue
