iPad Roundtable Project a Hit with Local Educators

Monday, October 31, 2011

The iPad Kindergarten Pilot Program Roundtable, a dynamic presentation that took place Wednesday afternoon, October 19, 2011,  in Mueller Theater, demonstrated and discussed Apple's iPad device and featured a trial program currently underway in eight area public schools.

Apple Higher Education Representative Megan Rosati discussed iPad educational initiatives occurring nationally and Pennsylvania Midwestern Intermediate Unit IV Coordinator, Justi Glaros presented the iPad trial program that she has spearheaded locally with eight school districts in Lawrence and Mercer Counties.

New Castle Kindergarten Teacher Chris Ferry joined the presentation live via "Facetime" from his classroom, showcasing how his particular students have gravitated to the devices, and candidly sharing his own experiences with the program. 

The event was well attended, with Westminster faculty and administrators, staff, students, alumni participating, as well as off-campus visitors interested in learning more about the program.

Westminster College's Audio Visual Department joined InfoComm International in its AV Week tradition to highlight the industry's prevalence and value, applauding our colleagues here and around the globe by spotlighting AV technologies, services, and the impact they have on everyday communications and our lives. This year marked the 6th annual AV Week at Westminster College, held October 16-22, 2011.
