Do you sometimes feel like you are drowning in a world of tech? With so many applications and programmes it can be overwhelming to know how to use technology, with your students, in an authentic and meaningful way. Join us to discover a few simple, easy and practical ways of using an iPad/tablet to enhance the learning in your classroom. Come along with a learning objective and an iPad/tablet and be prepared to explore, share and create! It doesn’t matter if you have 1 iPad per class or 1:1, we will show you effective ways that this device can be used. Details of apps that are needed will be given before the session.

It is suggested that attendees download the following apps:
  • Book Creator
  • Educreations / Explain Everything / screen casting app
  • Adobe Spark video
  • Chatterpix
  • Thing Link
  • Popplet
  • Flipgrid (optional)
