Dr. Culbert was awarded one of the iPad Pilot grants for the spring of 2012 for her class, Social Welfare Policy. SWK330 covers an historical and modern view of policies such as Welfare, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, substance abuse, and various mental health initiatives. She continuously reviews apps which might help make this class more mobile.
Dr. Culbert has chosen one app, iAnnotate, for grading student submitted papers. With iAnnotate, she can place the original document on a separate digital layer from the comments and corrections that she makes with a tool that looks like a highlighter, a red pen, or various other traditional marking tools. In her syllabus for this class, Dr. Culbert included an electronic poster presentation as part of the research demonstration to increase student success in their various careers.
