IPad Workshop
Posted 11/08/2016 08:15AM

This year the lower level teachers received iPads to support student learning. Before school year began, the teachers gathered to learn tips and tricks to initiate the use of the new technology in the classroom. Teachers had the choice between three leveled sessions based on their exposure and comfort with iPads. Level one explored the basic function, how to mirror the iPad onto the ActivBoard, and an introduction to digital portfolios using the app Seesaw. Level two featured four useful apps that students can use to show their learning in creative ways. These apps are Book Creator, ChatterPix, Explain Everything, and iBrainstorm. The teachers learned how easy it is to use iPads in an academic setting. Teachers also learned how to set up and begin using a digital portfolio with their classes. Level three explored coding and more interactive ways to make use of the portfolio. They played with a robot called Sphero and discussed different ways coding could be integrated into our Units of Inquiry.
