My name is Geralyn Arango. I am the owner of two iPads — well one for sure, and one more if I can prove that I can use it in my work as a college professor.
A nice spot to be in, eh?
Along the way, I hope to share some resources about the marvelous technology that is the iPad, and I welcome comments and suggestions about the how-to, where-to and if-to about anything iPad.
I am the mother of two teenagers, a 16 year-old named Courtney, who is my lovely at home tech-support, and a 13 year-old named Nicolas. Nic has Down syndrome and some other complications that have made learning a challenge. Technology has been a lifesaver, and is going to be more and more of a tool for him to access the world as a student and as a citizen.
I bought a 1st generation refurbished iPad for my household, particularly Nic.
I’m also a professor of special education at Holy Family University in Philadelphia, PA. This fall, an announcement was made that faculty could get iPads, a lovely brand new iPad 2 each, if we could create a project and report out on it by March 2012. My department created projects and each of us got an iPad.
If I fail to report out in March, I lose my iPad.
The clock is ticking.
