There is often a big divide between what happens in the laboratory and the way laboratory findings are practically applied.
Blended Learning is not so much an innovation as it is a natural by-product of the digital domain creeping into physical boundaries. As digital and social media become more and more prevalent in the life of learners, it was only a matter of time before learning became “blended” by necessity. That said, there’s a bit more to Blended and “Hybrid” Learning than throwing in a little digital learning.

As I approach a significant academic milestone this semester with the completion of my dissertation and PhD, I thought I’d share a very handy iPad application I’ve been using to annotate, correct and edit PDF versions of my own writing recently: iAnnotate PDF . iAnnotate PDF is $10 on iTunes , but it’s worth every penny. I generally use my free Dropbox account to upload PDF versions of documents to “the cloud,” then download them to my iPad with the free Dropbox iPad app to open them first in DropBox. Then I open the file in iAnnotate PDF. Just click the arrow icon in the upper right corner, and after it’s installed iAnnotate PDF should appear as a destination app option. I love how iAnnotate PDF supports highlighting, adding notes to pages, and also freehand writing.
