iPad Resources and EdTechTeacher iPad News
We hope that everyone had a good Thanksgiving holiday last week. In addition to iPad resources curated from the past two weeks, we have some news and announcements. First, registration is now open for the 2013 EdTechTeacher iPad Summit USA in Atlanta, GA from April 10-12. Next, we are thrilled to announce our 2013 Summer Teaching with Technology Workshop Series. For the first time, we are offering workshops in Chicago, Atlanta, and in Cambridge (near Boston). Finally, EdTechTeacher's Greg Kulowiec and Beth Holland are in the process of updating the iPad As… page. Stay tuned for new suggestions, learning objectives, and video tutorials.
