Learning with iPads-  Feb. 12, 2018

Join us for a day of exploration and discover how iPads can empower both teachers and students to foster creativity, collaboration and curiosity. This day of learning is focused on those thinking of adopting iPads or those early in the implementation of iPads.  There will be opportunities to be hands-on with iPads in workshops, to have a Q and A with Schools that have implemented iPads in India and abroad, and to network with students, teachers, peers and leaders.  
Please bring an iPad to this workshop, but if you do not have one, we will have some for you to borrow for this day.

Session 4: Social and digital media in the classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
With the power of digital and social media awash in the classroom, this session will be an introduction into how teachers can best position themselves to use and guide students to create content, understand bias and to harness this type of communication for improved teaching practices. With over 90% of secondary students using some level of social media for consuming or creating content, it is time that teachers acknowledge and begin to harness this power to enhance the best educational practices in the classroom.

Those who attend this session will leave with activities that can be modified at the elementary to secondary level and enhance PYP, MYP, and IB lessons in most any subject area.

Please make sure you have a professionally leaning Twitter account and a wikipedia login so that you can participate in the activities of the day. We can assist you in creating accounts as well the day of the conference.
