Presenters: Steve Kaufman and Tim Lombardo, Ashland University

We’re back! In this session will be showing some of the best apps for education across multiple types of devices. It doesn’t matter if you use an iPad, Android device, or even Google Chrome, more often than not, there is in fact an “app for that”. We will provide examples of fun assignments to conduct using apps, and also show some of the best ways to share an iPad screen or Android screen in your classroom. (Hint: It’s not using a Document Camera!) Get some new ideas for your classroom and share some of your ideas of how apps can be used in education.

Seven Futures of American Education

Improving Teaching and Learning in a Screen Captured World

February 1, 2013  2:00-3:00 pm ET – free to all.


Steve Gilbert interviews John Sener who offers the perspectives of author and parent; of observation, theory, and immersion.  Sener is the author of this book about the influence of technology on the future of higher education AND the parent of a son who is now half-way through his freshman year of college. 

Excerpts from book description: 

“… digital technologies….are…redefining knowledge, redistributing access, and renegotiating authority — while education’s growing importance is changing expectations about its performance. This combination offers a spectacular opportunity to improve education….by various scenarios — Free Market Rules, Free Learning Rules, Standards Rule, Cyberdystopia, Steady As She Goes — whose influences would be disastrous in the extreme but can be beneficial in moderation. …Online learning …can also lead the way …Strategies for re-empowering learning and teaching, such as learning-centered engagement, learner-generated content, and sensible assessment can enhance the value of the interpersonal interactions which are at the heart of learning and teaching.”
