Weekly Resources for Mid Summer
Summer Workshops continued on in Cambridge this week. At the beginning of the week, we spilt the iPad Classroom into two workshops focusing on Elementary and Middle & High School. Then, we wrapped with two, 2 day workshops. Holly Clark lead Digital Portfolios, and Samantha Morra taught the Flipped Classroom. Check out all of our Summer Agendas below and know that space is still available in many of our upcoming workshops in Cambridge, Austin, and Los Angeles.
