RMC Workshop on Flipping the Classroom

flipped_rmc_logoOn September 30, 2015, I’ll be giving a workshop on How to Flip Your Classroom. The time allotted is only an hour-and-a-half, so I thought I’d offload some of the didactics here to the web. This gives us more time to use during the workshop to actually apply the concepts to your projects.

The ten-minute video features EMRA resident and student members and CDEM leaders: Aditi Mitra, Michael Yip, Zach Jarou, David Gordon with help from Cathey Wise (EMRA) and Melissa McMillan (SAEM), with yours truly playing Mr. Ferguson.

Preview 7 vs Preview 8

Preview Icons

What happened to the that little boy on the Preview Icon?

Preview plays a big part of my workflow for reading and annotating PDF’s stored in Papers 3. I highlight, circle things, and add a lot of text, then all annotations are saved automatically back into the Papers library. Preview and Papers work together more smoothly than PDF Expert and Papers for the iPad. On the iPad, I use PDF Expert to do the same and Preview 7 and PDF Expert worked beautifully together.

The Mavericks version, Preview 7, worked incredibly well for this. With Yosemite, in Preview 8 we’re mourning the loss of more than just that boy. I was able to install both Preview 7 and 8 on my Mac and compare side by side.
