This semester, Ken Koltun-Fromm, Professor of Religion, is sharing multiple iPads with his students and projecting them wirelessly using an iPad mirroring application, AirServer. This is a new way of sharing content with students; professor and students all working together with no cables or computers in between.
Prof. Ken Koltun-Fromm has been using iPad since it was first released. So we asked him to share some of his favorite apps.
- My favorite app: I use it to read and mark up documents, view images, and I can download any document from my Dropbox, Google Docs, and Gmail accounts.
- This app works with Zotero so I can see all my bibliographical information on the iPad. Still not as functional as I would like, but access to bibliographical listings is still good, and I want to support efforts like this.
- Nice app for accessing Wikipedia. Basically the Wikipedia site packaged in an easy-to-read app.
- Social Networking
- Great blog app to use with iPad if you write your own blog.
- File Storage/Sharing
- Stores all my files to access anywhere, and it just works seamlessly.
- Google Drive
- Recent update makes this app very easy to use with Google docs.
- Free app that lets me track updates to apps I already own and to mark apps that I might want to buy in the future. Also informs me of price changes so I can perhaps wait for a sale.
Some members of the Haverford iPad community also recommended Notability. This note taking app allows you to type and/or handwrite notes. You can also record audio from iPad internal microphone.
The ITT is organizing a Show & Tell session on iPad apps on Friday, Nov. 2nd at 12:30pm. If you want to share your favorite apps or hear what apps other faculty members are using for teaching, please join us. If you are interested, please contact ITT (firstname.lastname@example.org).
