Valdosta State University iDoctors group was created to research technology tools and applications that promote engagement and interactivity in the classroom. One of our main goals since fall 2010 is to research iPad Apps, examine them and share personal learning experiences that we believe would improve teaching in the classroom with staff and faculty. During weekly meetings, members share information and best practices about the Apps they have used, tested and are confident would empower learning in the next generation classroom.In this round table interactive session, presenters will share some experiences on how these Apps are been used to encourage a collaborative learning environment. Participants are encouraged to bring their iPads. Participants without the iPads are also welcome to attend.
