Come find out how to use your iPad in the K-8 classroom. We will be exploring content specific and productivity apps for the classroom teacher. There will be some basic operation information but the focus will be on educational use. Participants should know basic fundamental use of the iPad as those topics will not be covered. We will be downloading and demonstrating how to use programs that would be appropriate for use in the classroom by students and educators. Participants will be asked to share some of their favorite apps with others.

Participants will be given access to several good sites to find apps by content and grade level. The iPad can be a tool for individual use or by a group of students. We’ll discuss how use one iPad when you have a class of 20 students.

Participants receive a new iPad or bring their own.
