iPad SummitJuly 15-16
Shorecrest Preparatory School
This two-day workshop will explore ways iPads can turn classrooms into hubs of student-directed learning where creativity, innovation, and collaboration ignite all levels of learners.
There will be a wide variety of sessions from which to choose each leveled to meet the individual needs of the participant. Some examples of offerings center around creating content and digital storytelling, differentiating instruction, research and presentation, and productivity. In each session, conversations will center around best practices and how the iPad fits into student learning.
In addition to introducing apps and integration strategies, we will also present lesson plans and examples of student work, so you can see ways to incorporate this technology into your classroom. Students will share how they are using the iPad meaningfully to tailor their learning.
