The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,600 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 27 trips to carry that many people.

2014 has been a good year with regards to both iPad research projects {BJET and CLL}.

I completed the Changing the Learning Landscape project, submitted a final report and presented the project findings at two conferences:

Aiyegbayo, O. (2014) Piloting the iPad (and other tablets) Coffee Club at the University of Huddersfield. 21st Association for Learning Technology Conference (ALT-C), Coventry, 1-3 September, 2014.

 Aiyegbayo, O. (2014) Exploring academics’ formal and informal iPad support systems. Media Enhanced Learning Special Interest Group (MELSIG) Conference, Manchester, 14 April, 2014. Continue reading Taking iStock of 2014

I facilitated an iPad (and other tablets) Coffee Club session last week during the Technology Enhanced eLearning Education (TEEE) Festival at the University of Huddersfield. 12 colleagues attended which was a decent turn-out as the Coffee Club sessions tend to average 10-15 attendees.

I presented the findings of the HEA’s “Changing the Learning Landscape” (CLL) funded project at the ALT-Conference in Warwick. The presentation was well received. Fiona Harvey and Tamsyn Smith (University of Southampton) attended my session which was great because University of Huddersfield’s iPad (and other tablets) Coffee Club was inspired by Southampton’s iPad (& alternative devices) Coffee Club.

Third and Final iPad (and other tablets) Coffee Club @ UoH

iPad Coffee Club

The third and final iPad (and other tablets) Coffee Club was held last week and 10 colleagues attended it. I would like to thank the HEA for the funds to organise these three sessions and there are plans to continue the coffee club sessions next academic year based on attendees’ positive feedback.

Colleagues liked the informal and relaxed atmosphere of the sessions which provided them the opportunity to learn from their peers and from the facilitator

“A great informal get together and opportunity to discuss ways in which to maximise the use of the iPad.”

 

“I liked the informal and relaxed nature of them, and the two-way flow of ideas.”

 

“Communication with other tablet users is good to get ideas for better downloads.”

 

I shared several apps (below) at the session which the attendees found useful. Continue reading Third and Final iPad (and other tablets) Coffee Club @ UoH
