This course will have participants discover the power of using the iPad to improve instruction. As we look at different pedagogical strategies to effectively integrate the iPad into the classroom, we will consider the SAMR model, while we discuss the importance of choosing the appropriate technology. Armed with a new focus each week, participants will create and present a lesson that links to their content standards, as well as share their personal reflections of the lesson with their classmates. Participants will leave the class discovering a personal tech integration toolbox that recognizes how to select digital tools that are appropriate for the task and that can transform learning to higher levels. (All levels are welcome.)
*If you do not have a district issued teacher iPad, one will be loaned to you to use for duration of class.
*This class will require consistent access to a classroom setting. Each week, participants will be required to utilize, evaluate, and discuss various technology tools introduced in the previous session.
This class is a course option within the Induction Program!
