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.

Coding on iPads
Limited Capacity seats available

Not long ago, coding was something left to older students, nerdy enough to put up with difficult user interfaces, arcane terms and little immediate feedback.

No more!

Thanks to the maturity of iOS devices and the app ecosystem, younger students can now learn to code in a hands on, fully interactive, entertaining and graphic-rich environment loaded with immediate feedback.

Jump on board as we explore the different options available for our younger students to learn the basics of coding.

Time will be reserved for both exploring age appropriate apps that I suggest as well as pooling your ideas to share with the entire group.

iPad Pedagogy
Limited Capacity seats available

Using the iPad to build confident learners.
The iPad has transformed many learning situations in our classrooms. This session reviews some recent research on how iPad's change learning and will allow some time for participants to think about what changes have taken place in their schools and start to describe this effect. The aim of the session is for participants to be better able to describe the function of an iPad's in their pedagogy.

iPads in Maker Classrooms
Limited Capacity seats available

We learn by doing. Elementary classrooms need to be places where children build and create, not sit and get. iPads aren’t in competition with traditional classroom tools of crayons, paint, glue and scissors they are there to enhance all the experiences that make our classrooms magical. In this workshop you will learn how to use iPads to intensify the creative process in your classroom and weave the inventing into other areas of the curriculum. Bring your sense of wonder and ingenuity. Glitter glue will be supplied.
