RPP #102: Seton Hill's iPad Experiment

  • Interview: Dr. Mary Ann Gawelek, Provost, Seton Hill University on "An iPad2 for Everyone". This is a follow-up with Dr. Gawelek, who I interviewed back in September 2010 (RPP# 87) just as they were about to launch their trend setting iPad program. I asked:
    • Why did you provide both iPads and Macbook Pros to students?
    • Did you “flip” your classrooms?
    • How is your faculty adjusting to this new paradigm?
    • Did you save on printing costs?
    • How about iBook Author or other e-textbook programs?
    • What lessons did you learn?
    • How do you gauge the success of the iPad program?
  • Links to resources mentioned:
  • Rod's Delicious iPad Bookmarks
  • Podsafe music selection from Music Alley
    • "Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme" performed by Jane Aubourg, a solo electric violinist using digital effects
