A Collaborative Instruction Tool for the iPad

Thursday, January 12 | 2:30PM–3:30PM | Harborside Ballroom Foyer
Session Type: Professional Development
In an effort to enhance mathematics instruction in both the traditional classroom and the distance-learning environment, we have developed an iPad application that allows for true collaboration among students and faculty. A shared whiteboard, the ability to create free-hand drawings, the insertion of text and images, and the use of multiple pages are just a few of the features that provide a means for students and faculty to work collectively in the classroom. This same application also makes it possible to offer nontraditional support through avenues such as "virtual office hours" and "virtual tutoring."
