The CON IT team is equipping all Newton Hall classrooms to be compatible with Apple devices (iPads, iPhones, Macbooks) so you can wirelessly project from your devices to the projector and screens in the classrooms. Currently, rooms 264 and 172 are ready to go with this new capability. Our plan is to equip all of our classrooms with Apple AirPlay this summer. For a step-by-step guide on how to connect your Apple device to the CON classroom equipment, follow the instructions on the wall near the classroom podium or refer to our one-page guide, Using the Apple TV.
An important update to a National Academies Press resource on teaching and learning is now available online as a downloadable PDF book. The book incorporates research from the past two decades to expand on the original report from 2000. How People Learn II includes chapters that summarize theories related to learning and knowledge, theories related to motivation to learn, and use of digital technology for learning. These summaries can be very helpful when we are designing learning interventions and collecting evidence of their effectiveness in the process of educating nurses. The new (and free) edition of this book can make underpinning your learning design with theory and evaluating the outcomes a little easier.
