We’ve experienced out first day challenge sharing what we have learned to do on our iPads. Now that you have started doing your studios and challenges, what else are you learning about using your devices? What do you feel like you want to learn? Share a newly discovered tip or technique in this challenge. Share an image from the device or a photo of it in action (you should know how to save a screenshot of your device).

In your response, include the way you normally use the app, and then detail what it might offer in an educational context.

Concept mapping is an alternate approach to course planning. Use the examples to help you rethink your course this way and choose one way to map out your course. Use a venn diagram approach to map out your in-class and out of class activities. You can do this on paper and take a photo to share, use the template provided https://drive.google.com/file/d/0By6nP-hAix_JNGkwOGlMaXlTc00/view?usp=sharing , or create your own using an app like BaiBoard.
