Pat LeMay Burr Ph.D. – Apple Distinguished Educator Apple Distinguished Educators (ADEs) are part of a global community of education leaders recognized for doing amazing things with Apple technology in and out of the classroom. They explore new ideas, seek new paths, and embrace new opportunities. That includes working with each other — and with Apple — to bring the freshest, most innovative ideas to students everywhere.

Where we are:

Where we are 19 Digital Media Summer Class overloaded. Waiting list. Students want in! Students applying to Geekdom Camp sponsored by Rackspace to propose their own app and digital media company-building ideas to be funded. MBA students increasingly using apps in their organizations and wanting to demonstrate that “how to” in class. (Students are mid-thirties, mostly.) More varied faculty across the curriculum will be embedding iPads into classes during Fall 2013 classes forward. Student volunteers assisting community center to launch iPad User Group among senior citizens.


Conclusion 20 iPad integration within classroom is quick and intuitive Students benefit from ease of use and for most apps the learning curve is short, allowing them to maximize the in-class benefits iPads help faculty make their course engaging Students want career-relevant learning with iPad Best to have a teaching and learning PLAN. Implement iPad with a purpose Productivity, Mobility and Creativity Assess based upon the PLAN Grade iPad activities Balance digital media with content of class (Content use vs. iPad use) Increased student purchase of current iPad Gradual expansion vs. explosive expansion is serious issue!
