IPADs in the College Classroom
Smart phones, tablets, IPods, computers--college students live and breathe technology.  Why not meet your students in their comfort zone?  IPads are a great way to get students engaged in their own learning experience.  For instructors, IPads can enhance teaching, create an easier and more interactive way to grade assignments, and makes communicating with students a snap.
