Apple Technology in the k-12 Classroom for IT Staff and Administrators - Sandra Roby and Judy Vizard attended July 26 and 27, 2011. See a list of iPad apps on the iPads at the training.
Two day training program for school IT staff and administrators. The main focus of this workshop is the use of iPads in the k-12 curriculum and the tools and support that teachers will need to implement this technology. Participants will learn the basics of the iPad and how teachers can use the iPad to improve student learning. A portion of each day will be spent using a MacBook for Apps that need this additional tool.
Note: This workshop is not designed to answer questions on how to sync multiple iPads, network issues and general IT issues. It is hoped that IT staff and school administrators will leave with a better understanding of what teachers will need to implement this technology.
It is recommended that administrators come with a member(s) of their IT staff.
