Gadget Day is August 22

At our last Gadget Day on April 11, we received many helpful comments. One comment in particular stayed with me. An attendee mentioned that it was difficult to decide whether to take time to attend a session when the title of the session was just the name of an unfamiliar gadget or software. So, for Gadget Day on August 22, we tried hard to choose clearer titles for our sessions. Did it work? Do let us know what you think!

We have an exciting day planned. Thanks to the SUG mailing list, we learned about Raspberry Pi, a $35 computer, from Paul Keener. Jordan McClead will continue his always-powerful session on the latest shiny new tablets and phones, and he is also taking on advanced Android use. Our friends at SAS Computing are bringing us several sessions this time related to cloud computing and Google. We continue sessions related to our iPads in the Classroom pilot and Pixelture.
