Have My Assistant Take a Memo - Note-Taking, Annotating, and Drawing in iOS

There are lots of app choices for notes and drawings to help study, organize,

brainstorm, and more. Common Core brings a renewed opportunity to teach students to manage their ideas, notes, outlines, and project planning. We’ll look at key features before diving into some free apps. We’ll also explore apps in multiple platforms for BYOD/non-iOS, before creating a resource guide for you and your students.

The 1:1 iPad Classroom and 21st Century Learning

From creation, communication, collaboration and critical thinking this session has it all! We will focus on the engaging ways you can teach students the important digital literacy skills they need to effectively research, organize and present information on their iPads. The focus will be on Google Apps for Education and iPad apps like Evernote, Notability and iMovie. You will leave this session with ideas you can implement in your classroom right away. Please bring your own iPad.

What can you do with just one iPad in the classroom? A LOT. We can't all have 1:1 iOS devices for our students, but we can harness the power of a single iPad to change our classrooms. Come share and learn the apps, hacks, and workflow that make your single iOS device a super flexible and powerful tool for learning.

Kirk used a communicator (cell phone) to send information to crewmembers of the Enterprise. Bones and Spok used a tricorder to transmit information about health and surroundings (iPad, camera, video, web browser). Jean Luc Picard had a Kindle to read his articles, crew reports and his favorite books. You can learn to use electronic devices like these Star Trek characters to report scientific data and research information related to the lab activities in the modern day classroom. (eclectic, random and flexible BYOD)

The Camera in Your Pocket (or on your Tablet)

We and many of our students have a device with us at all times that lets us take pictures anytime and anywhere. How can we take the best pictures with our mobile devices? What can we do with these pictures after we take them? Come to this session and take some photos on a short photo safari. Then explore some apps to edit and share photos and apps that will let your students turn their photos into multimedia rich reflections of their learning.

Students as Creators of Content, not Mere Consumers

Turn your iPads into something more than electronic worksheets. Put students in charge of their own education. Learn about and practice with apps that allow your students to become the teachers.
