How to get an iPad video to Google Drive or Drop Box
Presentation Site
iPad Retina display is amazing! 2040 x 1536 resolution with 326 pixels per inch is a beautiful thing! However, it creates REALLY large files that can be difficult to share.

This presentation shows two apps that will allow you to "shrink" the file size and then post to either Google Drive or Drop Box.

Increased use of touch screen devices (e.g., iPads) in educational technology has resulted in hundreds of available apps for the classroom. However, apps tagged as 'educational' in the marketplace are not created equally; some apps fail to make use of interactions or feedback conducive to learning. This seminar will provide attendees with methods for evaluating educational apps to support constructive learning in the classroom, focusing on finding interactions that promote deep cognitive processes. Feel free to bring your own device(s) and explore app demos along with us.
