As a way of continuing the great discussion that begun at Slide2learn 2012, we would like to invite all members to create short replies (50-200 words) by August 4th in this forum about:

A. What you learned if you attended S2L 2012

or B. Why you have a student that really needs the protection of a chunky case like this!

or C. What could this kind of design (ie with a stand) be really useful for? 

We will select 4 random entries to receive one of the cases thanks to iWorld Australia.

Having attended Slide2Learn, I was convinced of my passion for Technology and deepen it further, and that I could continue to learn as the challenges in delivering knowledge in education progresses. I was further motivated to pursue learning the new technologies to truly embrace my passion and assist my students in their ongoing future endeavours.

Thanks Frederick for that fast response!

This would be an excellent case to cover an iPad for early childhood and your special needs students. The design of the case would be advantageous as it would take many a hard knock but it would be easier for little hands or those with poor fine motor skills (Spina Bifida) to grasp, as it would provide a better grasping edge. It would stop the iPad slipping off a desk or lap and if you wanted to add a wireless keyboard you have a stand that would hold your iPad better. In group work students could have their device on a stand and present their work via iTV and have their hands free as they worked. It's applications are excellent. A great stand and case.

AR technology, was awesome, and opened a new world of teaching and what children can do with the different apps that were on display - AR Showcase, Aurasma Lite (my new play app), ARDinopark, LiveButterflies, AR Spaceship, Heart Cam Layar to name but a few.  Learnt that there are passionate people out there willing to share their ideas an "infuse" others with their enthusiasm.  Thanks to the team for a great two days. Awesome for networking as well, made friends and tossed around the 'crap app' store idea - 20c - cheap as.  The discussion time during presentation most valuable. As for the cover, excellent application outside for the Early Years students and those not comfortable with the slim line covers. Offers great protection, especially around the corners when ipad tend to "die" if dropped.   Can we 'fly' somewhere warmer for next year - please. 

This design would be really useful in a school Science laboratory for students of all ages. The upright position would allow students to access the screen, whilst taking up minimum amount of space on the work bench. It would also minimise chemical spills on the screen. The sturdy base would prevent it being knocked over during experiments. Last but not least, the bright colour makes it highly visible amongst all the science equipment.

Slide2Learn 2012 was such a huge learning leap for me that I am still processing those two days - and probably will be until next year's event. I was way out of my comfort zone. I do this often to myself; it certainly fits with teaching to remind oneself what it feels like to learn something new. Yes kids, it is hard and, yes it often is scary, but the rewards are there for daring to push yourself. So that's where I find myself now, floating and drifting in the collective energy of this newfound learning community I'm in. I was back to earth day one of term 3, starting a new six-month graduate posting at a very small country school with limited technology in use. With this KOOSH case, we could do lots of outdoor learning using QR codes and SCVNGR. I've also got a prep who needs extra help with her sounds and letters. The opportunities are endless, but I can justify using my iPad at school with the added protection of this groovy case. Plus, it's red!

Thanks to everyone for posting your thoughts - some great ideas and reflections! Now, via random selection - congrats to Rebecca McPake, Monica Lawrence, Michelle Ainley and Frederick D'Rozario ! We'll organise for iWorld Australia to post out your Koosh cases. Enjoy! and post back here how they go :)
