Was wondering if anyone prefers one of these three options when it comes to lecture notes in class: Options 1-Bring ipad to class and take notes from power point. Option 2-Bring PC (very heavy Dell pc) to class and take notes from power point. Option 3-Print out power point lectures and write notes by hand with pen (will require tons of paper and ink). I was contemplating on buying either a MacBook Air or Ipad 2, or just bringing my current old Dell to class for note taking....or I can just print the power points. What do you use or do in nursing school for lecture days??? Thanks so much!
I just got an iPad2 for class with a keyboard. I was nervous when I opened this thread, but it looks like some folks are finding the iPad useful. I have the keyboard for it and a voice recorder from my pre req days, and since I have an iPhone I can copy apps to both apple devices. My laptop died, and I didn't want to have a huge distracting laptop screen in class so that's why I went with the iPad. I love the setup with the keyboard for homework.
And to clarify, apple has Pages which is word processing that Can convert to .doc. There is also google docs as well if you have a google account.
I don't plan to use 3G. Everywhere I have taken my iPad to so far has wireless. Plus my iPhone has mobile hot spot if I ever find myself without it.
I would be interested to know what apps people are using.
