Paul Farber, Writing Fellow
Paul will discuss his experiences using an iPad to manage classroom interactions, including the associated possibilities and travails.
Hiroyo will discuss how she worked with Kimko Suzuki, a Japanese professor
1) to use iPads inside the classroom to change the dynamic of the Japanese classes.
2) to use iPads outside the classroom so that Kimko can spend her class time for discussion, rather than for presentation.
She will discuss the use of AirServer, which allows you to project your iPad, iPhone, and Macbook wirelessly in any classroom on campus. She will also discuss an interactive whiteboard app “Explain Everything” and show a student project using that app.

Lunch & Demonstrations of Tools to Create Micro-Lectures
Instructional Technology Services, IITS
Watch demonstrations of various instructional technology tools and programs that you can use to deliver your micro-lectures outside the classroom so that you can spend your precious class time on discussion, problem solving, etc. and focus on higher order thinking skills in Bloom’s Taxonomy.
If you are interested in learning how you can use technology outside your classroom, you might want to read this book “Teaching Naked: How moving technology out of your classroom will improve student learning” by José Antonio Bowen.

We’ll demonstrate the Zapotec Talking Dictionary and talk about the process of involving students, linguists, and Zapotec community members in collaborative work building the database for the dictionary, using a spreadsheet in Google Drive. We’ll discuss the role of the dictionary in a Haverford classroom, its use as a hands-on learning experience for students outside the classroom, and its place in a larger movement to engage technology in language preservation and revitalization projects worldwide.
Nick Jones, Laboratory Instructor & Research Coordinator, Psychology
Nick will discuss the variety of applications for which Qualtrics, a feature-rich and user-friend survey system, has been used in the Psychology department over the past year, from senior theses to longitudinal data collection. Qualtrics is available to all the Haverford students, faculty, and staff.
