ABOUT THIS LEARNING OPPORTUNITY

This session focuses on:
TPK (Technological Pedagogical Knowledge) - How to use the technology effectively, i.e. what are these tools and how can I use them to engage students in deeper learning?

The iPad is being embraced by more and more schools to allow students to interact with engaging content. More and more, this device is being used by teachers to allow students opportunities to create videos, audio recordings, images, text, and more to represent their knowledge and understanding. In this session you will learn about why media creation projects are fantastic for learners of all ability levels and interests and will be shown five amazing, easy to use iPad apps you can start using in your elementary classroom tomorrow!
This learning opportunity is subsidized as a result of a grant from Alberta Education to support implementation and will model technology integration in the core subject areas.
