iOS- Advantages and Disadvantages of Mobile Devices

With high adoption rates for mobile devices, specifically iPads and the iPod Touch, efforts to support these devices continue to evolve.  Management of the devices, app recommendations and purchasing, loan programs, and general integration into Preschool-12 and Higher Education faculty practices and curriculum are all topics under the lens of support.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of these devices outside of portability? Which apps are useful in the humanities? What are your experiences with iOS devices?  This session is intended to garner answers to these questions through participation from the group. I can also share some of my experiences with a pack of iPads used by faculty in the College of Education and Social Services at the University of Vermont.

About adam.deyo

I am a licensed Level II teacher in Vermont (birth-grade three) with a M.Ed in Educational Leadership. I am interested in the pedagogical and social implications of technology integration across various disciplines in our College. I do not have a specific research interest yet, perhaps THATCamp will provoke some possibilities though!
