Enhancing teaching with technology

Student Responses: How has the iPad been useful?

I found the iPad quite useful for my Chinese class, as I use its drawing function to practice writing Chinese characters. Also, I found a useful schedule app -

different from a calendar app - for keeping track and categorizing my classes, their assignments, and creating a visual of my schedule for future quarters

Being able to collaborate and take notes. It is sooooo nice. I like having access to documents and lecture notes everywhere.
