iAnnotate great for research and reviews of literature, according to one faculty member, but not as good for teaching. #E11_SESS050 #edu11

true of a laptop, no? “@rclemmons: "iPad really a portable office" according to one user interview. #E11_SESS050 #edu11”

Air Sketch app allows faculty to be untethered from podium. Content is done on iPad but projected wirelessly. #E11_SESS050 #edu11

Another possible option for untethering -- AppleTV. Requires HDMI connection to projector. #E11_SESS050 #edu11

@rclemmons Here's a @ProfHacker writeup of iAnnotate http://t.co/eKT11Qxa #E11_SESS050 #edu11

Other useful apps: Quickoffice, Mobile Mouse, Notability, & more...comprehensive doc posted to session site. #E11_SESS050 #edu11

At USF session on iPads and their implication for HE...should be interesting! #E11_SESS050 #edu11

Why iPad study? eReaders, rise of mobility, textbook costs, support for faculty innovation, impact of tablets on HE. #E11_SESS050 #edu11

Fundamental question - do you need both a laptop and an iPad, and when do you use one over the other? #E11_SESS050 #edu11

Top apps used by faculty: DropBox, iAnnotate, GoodReader.... #E11_SESS050 #edu11

"iPad really a portable office" according to one user interview. #E11_SESS050 #edu11

No need for proprietary clickers....poll folks using their devices they already have for a better response.
