Teaching with the iPad Workshop Blog
By Nancy Mikhail
If you’ve visited Curriculum Resources, you may be familiar with my popular workshop, “Teaching with the iPad.” If not, welcome! Let me tell about our latest event.
“Teaching with the iPad” explores educational tools that can be integrated into the classroom or home school education. I focus on all grade levels – technology is important at every age – and also touch upon which apps are available through the Android since there’s a good mix of usage amongst educators.
(I know, I know. The workshop name needs to be changed.)
Moving forward. What I really like about this workshop is that I emphasize apps that promote creativity and critical thinking amongst students. Let’s face it – our kids live in a world overly saturated with technology. It is our responsibility as educators to teach them how to use it in ways that develop and enhance their skills as individuals and intellectuals. As an educator, I know that it can be difficult to integrate technology into an already seamless lesson plan. So bring on the questions. What applications do find the most difficult? What are your needs as an educator integrating technology into the classroom?
I’m really excited about this workshop. It’s the first Curriculum Resources is hosting and I’m looking forward to seeing you all there!
