The events include practical and imaginative sessions (with Academic Technology, LDC, IATL and Audio-Visual Services). This will culminate in a visualisation workshop on Friday 20th, with idea visualisation artist Laura Brodrick - see www.thinkbigpicture.co.uk for examples.
Since its release on April 3rd 2010, iPad ownership and use has spread rapidly amongst all kinds of people and into all kinds of activities. The iPad has brought digital content and processes into our lives in seemingly unanticipated ways. It is a paradigm shift in how we use technology, and perhaps in the very nature of being human. Education has not been immune. However, the adoption of the iPad as a teaching tool has not yet lived up to the hype. This workshop addressed the question: what is "the pedagogy of the iPad"? Did you know that the iPad concept was invented in the mid 80's by a collaboration of anthropologists, designers and computer scientists at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Centre? The PARCPad was just one component in a much more revolutionary vision: ubiquitous computing, out of which developed the concept of ubiquitous learning.
