Description

Librarians at California State University Northridge have spent the previous year experimenting with their new iPad instructional classroom. The room includes an iPad cart with 32 iPads for student use and an Apple TV that allows librarians to teach untethered. Over the past year they have developed a set of best practices for teaching with mobile devices that they will share with participants. Many educational apps are geared towards semester long classes; the presenters will also highlight and demonstrate apps that they have found particularly useful for one-shot library instruction sessions. The workshop will benefit librarians who teach untethered with a tablet, who teach in an iPad classroom, who teach in a traditional computer lab, and anyone interested in converting their classroom from desktop to tablet technology. Participants will be encouraged to bring their own devices to take part in active learning activities using some of the apps demonstrated.
