OSU’s DigitalFirst takes their name seriously…

Digital First – an initiative at Ohio State University – is trying some new, innovative projects to improve student performance using technology.  The mission of their Digital First initiative is that…

Ohio State University recognizes that we live in transformative times, and students, faculty and staff expect to learn and work with relevant tools. Digital First will redesign the campus experience at Ohio State by optimizing wireless and classroom technology, providing faculty the opportunity to offer engaging digital learning content to students, and by enhancing the student experience from enrollment to graduation and beyond.

Intrigued?  So was I.  I started following them on Twitter – @DigitalFirstOSU, and checked out their website.  My favorite quote from the below video was this from Dr. Tom Gregoire, the Dean of the College of Social Work:

The below video has some really interesting thoughts on their implementation of an iPad pilot.
