Don’t you know? We’re talking about a revolution. All references to that famous Tracy Chapman song aside, the iPad does present some opportunities for dramatic change.
Take education: Why not possible to complete a top-notch international diplomacy and commerce graduate degree with only an iPad at your fingertips?
And that’s exactly what the fine academics at the University of Kentucky’s Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce want to find out. They’re betting big that it’s more than possible. Their newly started 18-month trial has the entire professional school using the device for everything from recruitment, admissions, seminars, graduation and all the research and writing in between.
They kicked this thing off on Monday — and we’re happy to say that we can add the Mayor of Lexington, KY, the President of the University of Kentucky, and a former US Ambassador to the list of BookBook fans. (Oprah, you’re in good company!)
We’ll let them tell you about it. Here’s the press release from the kickoff.
They’ll be using Twelve South BookArcs in the classroom, and the faculty will travel with our Compass. A couple of lucky students won new BookBooks for their University-issued iPads, so the race is on.
