AT Friday: A Semester in Review

It seems like just yesterday that we were starting off the academic year by welcoming six new fellows and here we are at the midpoint of the year, wrapping up some semester long projects and beginning preparations for some spring semester projects.

This past semester saw the inception of our iPad Pilot Program. We spent the semester exploring how iPads impact learning and teaching and came across some pretty cool apps such as: CloudOn, WolframAlpha, SlideShark, LogMein, EduCreations, and Trello, in the process.

AT Fellows have also spent some time exploring other great methods of supporting learning through technology. If you’re a CS student you may find these tools useful or if you’re interested in  learning some computer science (or anything else!) over break check out these online learning sources. If you’re looking for some learning management tools check out RescueTime and the LiveScribe Smart Pen. You can find help for collaborative work from Doodle, Webex, and Asana.

This upcoming semester we look forward to continuing the great work with the iPad Pilot and role out an exciting new service, JumboStudy, designed to help with peer-to-peer learning. Come back in the new year for posts on these and other new developments, as well as our usual tips and tricks for technology in education. Wishing you happy holidays and a happy new year!
