Visual Notes and Vivid Memories: The Digital Tablet as a Travel Companion - Sponsored furniture provided by Steelcase, Gold Partner

Thursday, October 17 | 10:10AM–11:00AM | Meeting Room 304A/B
Session Type: Professional Development
The presenters have developed and tested a tablet-based application centered on travel as an educational tool for students of architecture, planning, environmental design, and other experiential field study curriculums. Media integrated with geospatial mapping has enhanced the user experience, allowing users to "retrace" their steps through the field-trip sites.

Learn how tablet-based technology and interface is valuable for the emerging design student. | Hear about the value of bundling and geographically organizing travel media. | See how students transition between the app and other apps on the device.
