A quick summary of the audio clips from the other student's perspective:
1. Name three things you liked about using the iPad.
- I preferred the ease of CBB (Creative Book Builder app) as opposed to hard copy projects, because it was much easier to change things.
- Communication in group projects was also much easier, as sending a presentation, like Powerpoint, could be changed by your group members and sent back to the regional owner with their changes.
- The Internet was more readily accessible to me, even if our home computer was occupied.
- The environment; we used less paper.
2. Name three negatives.
- Most of the things on the iPad can or could have easily been done on paper. When given the choice, I always took notes by hand. Writing it helped me remember, and typing truly did nothing for me. Even when studying, I used the iPad as a reference, but I still have a notebook.
- Also, in foreign languages like mandarin, it is very difficult to hand write the characters on the iPad.
- Online textbooks were also unhelpful and didn't enrich the learning
- Always update your apps to avoid teachers becoming mad
- Constantly upload things to iCloud or eBackpack to avoid taking up too much space on the iPad.
