Sorry, this workshops has been cancelled.

Got an iPad? Then you've got a toolbox that you can fill to help you be an even better teacher! Discover how iPad can be your handy assistant by spending time learning about apps and services that you'll wonder how you ever lived without. 

The day is all about verbs, that is, the things an educator can do with an iPad. Those actions include showing your screen on a projector, managing the classroom, assessing student work, interacting with students, accessing your files, making instructional media, and expanding professional learning. You can accomplish those tasks with a variety of apps and websites. 

The workshop focuses mostly on free apps that you'll be able to put to use immediately. Those apps will turn iPad in a timer, interactive whiteboard, voice recorder, document camera, calendar, magazine, and notebook. See how iPad can help you capture learning artifacts, plan lessons, poll students, visualize concepts, share demonstrations, and much more.

Please bring an iPad, charger, and earbuds so you can participant in the hands on activities. At the conclusion of the workshop you will receive a certificate with the workshop's agenda that will list six hours of participation.
