Archaeology and iPads

September 29th, 2010 by Chris Strauber

My alma mater, the University of Cincinnati, is using Apple’s iPad to support archaeological fieldwork, note-taking, and sketching. According to Professor Steven Ellis, “The recovery of invaluable information from our Pompeian excavations is now incalculably faster, wonderfully easier, unimaginably more dynamic, precisely more accurate, and robustly secure.”

Other universities are trying  iPad experiments in hopes of seeing what students do with them. It is a common-place of commentary on the iPad that it’s for consumption rather than creation…but perhaps it’s just a question of what kind of creation you’re doing.
