This intermediate iPad course is designed to help classroom teachers integrate multimedia productions in their classroom. With the underlying principles of Project Based Learning, teachers will be able to redefine their classroom projects immediately while “hacking” their assessments. Participants will learn how to teach students to author their very own multimedia presentations and broadcast them to parents, schools, and other outside communities. As part of this course, participants will receive an iPad Multimedia kit to build a small classroom studio to help start creating high-quality video and audio immediately. This kit will include a green screen, microphone(s), and an iPad tripod.
As a prerequisite to this course, participants should have an iPad (iPad Air 2, Mini 2,3, or 4, or iPad Pros) and have a basic understanding of iPad features, settings, and functions.
This blended course will take place in both an online setting with discussions on the book Hacking Project Based Learning by Ross Cooper through our LMS, Schoology, as well as six face to face sessions (four in the summer) with a hands-on interactive approach. There is 3 ½ hours of online work per week. Participants will be actively engaged in creating these useful presentations for their classroom during the face to face sessions.
This course is ideal for any K-12 application. Whether you’re interested in flipping your classroom or redefining some of your classroom projects, take this course to take your Project Based Learning to the next level.
Through our partnership with the University of North Dakota, we offer 3 graduate-level professional development credits for all of our courses. Upon courses completion, participants will receive an official University Transcript. Courses are also available in Non-credit version where participants can receive credit hours to submit for Act 48.
