iPad Labs: Ultimate Substitute or Colossal Headache?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Purchasing iPads to create a mobile, flexible classroom for any library type presents immediate advantages. Myriad teaching possibilities combined with the minimal physical infrastructure needed and excellent device battery life easily pegs an iPad lab as promising. Still, using an inherently personal device in the traditional library classroom environment does present significant challenges. Attendees will learn about the requirements to set up, administer and maintain a fleet of 30 iPads, potential roadblocks in the one shot classroom user experience, positives of iPads in this environment, and key points for any library looking at this route to consider.

I love leading my library's digital services, thinking about user experience, and promoting the thoughtful use of technology. I also have over four years experience supporting fully online students, nerd out on project and content management, and believe in the power of good communication. I live in beautiful Burlington, Vermont and can talk your ear off about eating locally and being a CSA ninja.
