The presentation provides faculty an opportunity to pilot using an iPad and Apple TV in their classroom to address student inquiry, knowledge construction and critical thinking. Four Apple TVs are available to rent from TAC.
The iPad may be used for exercises addressing student inquiry, knowledge construction and then critical thinking. Student inquiry refers to learning through asking questions. Knowledge construction refers to learning through experience and reflection. Critical thinking is determining judgment on claims, accepting, rejecting or suspending the claim based on prior learning. Using apps such as The Elements, StarWalk and Brain Pro (for those teaching science), the iPad can change the way students experience information, leading to new possibilities for learning.
