The iPad is much more than a device for accessing and using Apps in the curriculum. The iPad can be used by students and teachers as a creative tool in the classroom--and beyond the walls of the school. Imagine having your students at Coney Island, taking pictures, collecting data, making short videos of the experiences, Facetiming with their peers in Los Angeles (who are at Catalina Island at the same time) then producing a Keynote presentation on their way home! Or, imagine your students on the school study tour, creating an iPad-based Wordpress blog, featuring reflections, images and videos of their trip! In this webinar, participants will learn how to use iMovie, Keynote and Numbers for iOS as comprehensive learning tools as well as "discuss" project development and assessment. Samples of student projects will be shared and critiqued.
