I attended a workshop recently where we formally launched the YSJ ipad project . It was a really positive event and after getting through so many hurdeles I was amazed we managed to make it happen. All credit to the team for iroingin out some very challenging issues since we decided to do this in the summer.
We heard from two teams from YSJ who have been piloting the use of ipads in the classroom and I have to say it made me feel very excited as to how this could revoluntise and enhance the student experience. The app for the muscle system used by OT made me realise how much more exciting anatomy could now become! It felt as though you could actually dissect a body in the classroom. It was also good to see how ipads could be used effectively to provide formative assessment and feedback opportunites in an interactive and fun way in Teacher Education. I look forward to seeing how the project develops. I think I need to think how I coud use this to deliver a staff development event.
