My Economics class, which also dedicates part of the Spring semester to personal finance and literacy, relies heavily on the use of graphs, models, and diagrams. These are central to any economics and personal finance course. In a live classroom I use whiteboards, a document camera, and the traditional pen and pencil to teach and model these things for students as well as have them practice both in groups and individually. In our current distance learning environment, I have found it very difficult to replicate what works for me in the live classroom as I do not have access to my materials at home. An iPad would supplement, or even replace, traditional materials I rely on. I can use this as a digital whiteboard. I can also load documents and practice problems we can work on and annotate together. Furthermore, I can record lessons and share with students for them to review and study on their own. Recording also ensures that students who miss class or cannot attend consistently will always have access to our lessons afterwards. From examples I have seen when researching iPad use I've learned there are many ways to apply and integrate this into my course and that I should make it a permanent addition to my toolbox. This upgrade in technology will result in more efficiency, increased productivity, and improve the overall quality of my class during distance learning and beyond.
