Updating to iOS 11, with Friends, Chris Russell and Paul Shimmons (Season 3, Episode 1)

Paul Simmons and Chris Russell (Co-hosts of the Music Education Technology Podcast) join the show to talk about all of the new features in iOS 11. We touch on it all! The dock, multitasking, the new Files app, new Notes features, and even the iPhone X announcement. This is a great episode to listen to if you have seen Apple’s prompt to update and you are on the fence. We will walk you through all of the major changes, and how we are using them.

My post about syncing a Logic file on a Mac with a GarageBand file on an iPad

Made with ARKit

Note! In our review of all the ways to launch an app into multitasking mode that is not on the dock, I forgot one. If a Bluetooth keyboard is attached to your iPad, you can press Command+Space to launch Spotlight, search for an app, start dragging the icon, and drop it into place next to your existing app. It isn’t pretty, but it works.

 

Digital Organization Tips for Music Teachers, Chapter 6 - Working with PDFs, with Guest Paul Shimmons (Season 2, Episode 6)

In this weeks episode, I am joined by Paul Shimmons (band director, music tech in education blogger, and podcaster). We have a great time talking about our various workflows for reading, editing, annotating, and organizing our PDFs. This episode was recorded shortly after the announcement of iOS 11 which will bring a lot of new productivity features to the iPad. Naturally, we had to discuss these announcements and how they might reshape our PDF workflows next fall.

This episode has chapters!!!! Using your podcast app of choice, skip to any topic in the episode by taping on the title of that chapter.
