The iPad for Learning & Teaching Workshop at IMU!

First, I would like to declare that I am NOT working for Apple, and I was certainly not paid for preparing a workshop (and slides) on using iPad for learning and teaching. However, I do use iPad a lot for my own personal learning, and there are some really cool things that educators can do with it to engage students and inspire more creativity, besides the negative aspects which are highlighted, too (Slide 11).

The 'iPad for Learning and Teaching' workshop was facilitated at IMU on the 9th January, 2013 (for IMU faculty staff only).

Now, let's explore some of the cool stuff!


This 1/2 day hands-on workshop will awaken and empower you on how iPads can be used more strategically and effectively for learning and teaching using a range of cool apps. It will be interactive, engaging, fun, and you will learn a lot of tips on how to use mobile devices to engage your students in and beyond the classroom. 

After completing this workshop, you will be able to:
  • Download and annotate presentations/articles/notes.
  • Use social media to connect and collaborate with others.
  • Create interactive multimedia e-books.
  • Create and publish online interactive video tutorials.
  • Use a variety of apps to engage students in and beyond the classroom.

Excellent Job Zaid!
Please add Zotero to your annotate notes and documents list. It is free!

Thanks Rob!

I will do that for the next version, which will be out in 2-3 weeks time. Will be conducting this workshop in Saudi Arabia (twice) in early February. In addition to Zotero, I also need to add iAnnotate PDF (Feedback from Prof. Karm).

That is why I love sharing my slides ASAP...Fastest way to learn and improve :)

Well done, Zaid! I will be using some of your slides for my teaching staff at the beginning of the year if I have your blessing. Your work on how to introduce and implement iPads within the classroom, both for educators and students alike, will be truly inspiring for my staff.

Thanks Matthew

Dear Matthew,

Please do! That is why I like to share, being able to assist educators without a physical presence to any part of the world. However, please do not forget to acknowledge my work or link back to this blog at least once during your workshop.

Thanks again and good luck with inspiring your educators to infuse more engaging learning with their students :)

Warm regards,
