Course Description

Teaching with iPadsThis introductory iPad course is designed for classroom teachers to explore, practice and create content as it applies to the K-12 classroom. From basic management of the iPad to content creation, students will develop an understanding how the iPad can transform teaching and learning. Students will create movie trailers, publish digital text, develop an iPad workflow, create screencasts and presentations, and learn how to use the iPad to develop formative assessments. In doing so, Students will connect the content with pedagogical practices such as the SAMR model, differentiated instruction to meet the needs of all learners, and 21st century learning skills.

In this blended course, students will meet face-to-face six times for four hours and experience a hands-on approach to Teaching with iPads. Throughout these six face-to-face modules, students will engage in hands-on learning, group sharing of ideas, and small breakout sessions that offer differentiation of learning styles.

Students will also engage in 3.5 hours of online work per week which includes course readings, reflective responses and collaborative sharing of ideas through one of our course learning management systems, Canvas or Schoology. Students will create one product for each learning module that has practical meaning to classroom instruction.

This course is perfect for any K-12 educator looking to spark creativity and increase student engagement in the classroom!   Register today and we’ll provide you with a new 32 Gig iPad!
