This full day workshop will focus on implementing the iPad to support students' needs in the areas of literacy, math and general school skills. The workshop will begin with an introduction and overview covering the configuration of the iPad for optimal use including integration with other technologies such as the cloud, LCD projects and smart boards. This will be followed by an introduction to apps and accessories commonly used to support reading, writing, math, organization and note taking.
The morning session will conclude with a round-table to facilitate the identification of current teaching activities, implementation and learning practices, as well as potential barriers to iPad use in the classroom. We will use the result from this discussion to guide a more tailored look at implementing the iPad during the afternoon session.
The afternoon session will focus on real world uses and best practices. Activities may include accessing and using and Learning Ally books, using the iPad to support a specific writing curriculum, focusing on active reading strategies and note taking using the iPad, or any number of other topics identified during the morning session.

Please come prepared to discuss your particular interest and needs; and by all means bring an iPad and any accessories you may have.
