The Digital Classroom

Since the introduction of the iPad in 2010, computer tablets have proven to be relevant, practical tools in the workplace and in the classroom. The addition of tablets to the classroom, however, introduces another potential distraction to students. Part 1 introduces the network infrastructure required for successful deployment of the digital classroom that reduces distraction and improves the learning experience.

Though proper network infrastructure is essential, the digital classroom will only be successful when the teacher harnesses the power of this technology to improve the learning environment. Part 2 explores apps, services, and techniques that will allow tablets to enhance the classroom experience for both the student and the teacher.

Transition to Edmodo

For my classes, we have begun using Edmodo as our digital resources provider and will no longer be dependent on iTunes U or Google Drive to deliver digital content to student tablets. You can find all digital materials including documents, links, and other applications available through the Edmodo online portal and mobile application. You can find links to Edmodo attached to this post.

Those who have taken notes within the iTunes U app will need to transfer them to a different application (Pages, Google Docs, Evernote, etc.) You must have these transferred by Friday, October 17 which is the day iTunes U will be discontinued for class use. After this day, you will no longer have access to this course in iTunes U.

Please contact me if you have any questions.
