Testing the waters

Apple has sold nearly 15 million iPads since it’s release and the second you try one you will understand why. The technology is amazing and intuitive.

On Friday, students from the Graphic Design and Communications Department got a chance to test drive the iPad. Bismarck State College’s mobile iPad lab was wheeled into the classroom, and with the help of Scott Helphrey, BSC’s Instructional Technologist, the students were up and running quickly.

The first step into using the iPad lab was a small one – a contest was created in which students voted between two designs. A bracket was created and the process was continued until one design was considered the popular favorite.

The introduction of this technology into the classroom was interesting. We may soon see students using this kind of a device rather than a laptop or even instead of a textbook.
