HyperOffice for iPad: Aiding Collaboration at Canter Companies


Collaboration is important to businesses large and small. It helps bring distributed teams together, facilitates better decisions, and keeps everyone in the loop. Collaboration also is a great reason to deploy iPads. When you need something, you need it now, not when you get back to your desktop. When you learn something, you want to capture it immediately. When someone needs you, you want to be able to respond quickly. Collaboration is very personal.

Engaging Students in Higher Order Thinking with iPads (medical data)



“Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.” - Aldous Huxley


I took a research class when I began graduate school so I could begin my master’s thesis as early as possible. One of the concepts that stuck with me was the importance of sample size. The larger your sample data set is the better your findings will be.

Engaging Students in Higher Order Thinking with iPads (Right to Life)


“The pure and simple truth is rarely pure and never simple.” - Oscar Wilde


The Preamble to the Constitution of the United States of America establishes insuring domestic tranquility as one of the nation’s four primary objectives but the first is Justice.

It’s been nearly ninety years since a high school science teacher was tried and found guilty of the crime of teaching the theory of evolution. Perhaps it is time to reopen the case?

Higher Order Thinking with iPads (Part #8 - Researching with Safari & Google)



“A man’s errors are his portals of discovery.” - James Joyce

Students with iPads are primed for a voyage of discovery and Safari is their standard compass. Their ships are propelled by Google’s powerful search engine. All they need is a reason to pull up their anchors. We provide the reason and charts but the journey is theirs.

Higher Order Thinking Skills (Part #3 Projects)


"Every time you do a project, you learn something new." - Justin Timberlake

So you want to engage your team(s) in a project involving higher order thinking. What project(s) will they be working on? 

You can assign projects or let your team(s) select their own. I find participants are more highly motivated when they have a choice but I suggest providing a list of projects from which they may choose. This strategy worked well for me when distributing work assignments to engineers.
