In this hands-on, intensive, two day workshop, participants will explore advanced topics in classroom iPad integration. The workshop will include an exploration of advanced curation, creation and organization using iPads. Participants will also explore the use of iPad specific Learning Management Systems (LMS) to organize and manage an iPad classroom as well as the creation of student portfolios. Advanced workflow strategies will be covered as well multi-app combination scenarios to create multimedia content. Participants will be given hands-on time to explore, practice and refine their skills in the workshop. Advanced iPad classroom scenarios will also be explored with an eye towards solving unique problems that arise in an iPad classroom.
