add a public Google calendar to your iOS device

I do not have an iPhone so these instructions are based on what I could find.

Option 1:
The easiest way to subscribe to a public calendar (like ours) is to copy and paste the calendar's ical address and email it to yourself. Then when you open the email, click the link. Your iPad or iPhone should ask if you want to subscribe to the calendar. Accept and you're all set.

If this option doesn't work for you, try the next option.

Option 2:

Step 1: Copy the calendar's ical feed.

Step 2: Open Settings on your device and select "Mail, Contacts, Calendars"; then choose "Add Account..."

Step 3: Choose "Other"

Step 4: Paste the ical address

Step 5: Save the subscription and you're set.

Step 6: Go back to your main Calendar page and see if it shows up.

The idea is that there must be a way to quickly and easily share articles recent articles that we may read regularly, but that students don't see. In this way it's akin to enlarging their circle of resources. Of course, we could just add students to our social networks such as Facebook or Twitter, but I'm not one of those instructors who is comfortable sharing my Facebook information with my students and sometimes I take long breaks from Twitter. So at present, I'm playing with Flipboard. I create my own "magazine" around a particular class I'm teaching- Stats or Migration- and put articles that I think…
