Office Suite I occasionally need to ask the odd question about a package and no one I work with seems to know more / less than me Google Suite I use Google and Google Scholar – there’s more?? Devices I’ve used an iPad briefly. I’ve got a smartphone, but not sure about apps.

Content Creating LinkedIn, Google and Twitter accounts Google power searching Exploring Tablets and Apps Working in the cloud Using social networking Using Moodle as a teacher Digital security Creating online content Supporting research Using Mahara
Feedback Google searching session – some really good tips that I can use with the students and in 1-2- 1s More confidence in how to potentially use tablet devices with school groups Enjoyed the opportunity to discuss ideas/tools/new services
Never used a tablet device before – good to see the positives (and limitations) of these More knowledge of cloud computing – saving and accessing documents/collaboration tools could be really useful Useful to learn about digital security – would like to see more about this from ITS
