Kathryn Malody talked about the successes and challenges of preparing and then utilizing iPads while abroad. She presented the peripherals to protect the iPads from the Jamaican climate while maintaining their functionality for an art and biology course. She also talked about the apps that they used. Ben Phillip introduced the SAMR model, which breaks down how technology can be leveraged on four different levels – as a direct substitution of existing technology, as an augmentation with slight improvements, as a significant modification of technology, or as a complete redefinition. A chart containing apps listed within these levels was also explored.
