Building the iPad Teacher: Thinking Beyond the Device

For years, EdTechTeacher has been working with schools and districts in all stages of iPad integration. One fundamental truism has emerged: The real challenge for educators is not learning the iPad. It’s working to develop a pedagogical vision of what’s possible and implementing a strategic plan to make it happen. 
From concepts to practice, this session will focus on progressing the iPad classroom and iPad program from "1.0 to 3.0.” It begins with a vision of what we want students to do and a plan for how we get there. It includes positioning the iPad as a portable media creation device to support all learners in diverse student performances of understanding. It involves constructing activities that encourage ingenuity and nurture innovative, problem-solving, and entrepreneurial minds. It integrates specific classroom strategies, such as “challenge-based” instruction, “Evergreen App” convergence, and "App-Smashing" creations. 
Whether beginning an iPad classroom or assessing an iPad program, this session will help you develop and nurture an iPad "culture of innovation”— an environment that encourages students to be active, immersed, and creative thinkers.
