Teaching with iPads Without Neglecting Essential ICT Skills
Limited Capacity full

With the understandable rush to embrace authentic, integrated technology, we are in danger of losing something - a broad, balanced set of ICT Skills. But can we really have these without reverting to the bad old days of lab teaching? - yes we can.

We should not neglect opportunities to read and write, for example, realistic fiction, or physics or shape and space in Mathematics, I believe the same applies to what could be called the 'digital domains' or literacies of ICTs, such as, text, image, video, audio and data (with coding/control waiting in the wings) - this is easier than you might think, and this session will show just how easy it can be to have your digital cake and eat it.

Throughout the Learning Walk, eight different aspects of Identity will be explored by eight Apple Distinguished Educators. The Big Idea connects to many aspects of Citizenship and was chosen due to its significant relevance for all educators. 
The Learning Walk has been designed to be a 2 hour, flexible and personalised experience. Rather than being situated in a room, the Learning Walk will run as a series of concurrent “consultancies” allowing participants to move freely around the space, visiting as many, or as few “consultancies", as they wish. Participants will engage in short activities, conversations and listen to stories of what is happening in schools/classrooms in both Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.
We will also be using iBeacons to deliver content as participants move through the Learning Walk so if you are interested in joining us, please download the Locly app onto your iPad/iPhone in advance and come primed for something a little bit different!

8 Apps for Everything
How we set up iPads to focus on pedagogy not technology. As revolutionary as iPads are, they suffer from one particular affliction, they remain, in the minds of many, if not most of our students and parents, gaming devices. Which is fine, but it is important that you understand that in our school, this is rarely if ever how they are used. In our school, they are devices for capturing learning, devices that allow us to permeate our classrooms with what we call:
Capture Culture
This means that as teachers we need to make sure we focus on ensuring that they are used as learning devices, as devices that capture learning; if there’s ONE thing that sums up what we're trying to establish it’s this - we are building a capture culture - that’s it, everywhere, all year long.
Capturing what they can do, can't do, could do, thought they could do but couldn't, couldn't do but now can, and so on.
So, as strange as this may seem, considering the plethora of Apps on the App Store, the Apps we really focus on are not the usual suspects, the 'skill and drill' 'educational' Apps, no, we focus on just 8 Core App

Bring Digital Badges to your Students or Organization with Credly.com
Recognition is one of the biggest motivators for people. Being singled out for excellence among your peers is incredibly motivating. For many years, badges, pins, medals, plaques and other pieces of paper have been given to people to recognize their achievements. However, it is hard to share this recognition with others in a virtual way. Especially on your website, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or other social networks.

Classrooms as Social Networks (Interthinking)
Limited Capacity seats available

Possibly one of the most exciting applications of digital technology in education are the kinds of activities that encourage the unique ‘peer to peer’ interactions between students, and/or the teacher, within a shared online space. Despite being one of the most transformative tools for enhancing learning on an iPad, it is one of the easiest to set up, monitor and maintain. There are many platforms you can use for this, for us as a GAPPS school, Google Sites provide a 'wiki' environment that works magnificently. It is one of those applications of tech that goes deep with educators—if you want to see a teacher embrace and RUN with a tech tool, this is the one; it takes (literally) a few minutes to post a provocation (maybe longer to actually think of a good provocation) then sit back and watch the students take it and transform it.
Now the teacher sits back and absorbs the feedback, watching the conversations unfolding, expanding and developing, but their role, as you will learn in this presentation, is still critical.

On the other hand, research shows that media multitasking can have a negative impact on school performance.
