July 28-August 1, 2014 Emerging Technologies Summer Institute

Join us for a week-long exploration of how iPads are being used to help educators:
  • increase efficiency, organization and productivity to make the non-essential more routine
  • create more student-centered, personalized, and/or self-paced learning opportunities
  • differentiate both assessment and instruction more efficiently
  • give more frequent, timely and effective feedback to students
  • increase student engagement by delivering content in unique new ways
  • teach students how to create and critique media messages and be good digital citizens
  • provide learning opportunities beyond the classroom walls by increasing community collaboration
  • develop more authentic, challenging and inquiry-based learning opportunities for all students
Whole-group morning sessions will focus on iPad functions and essential apps that align with NETS standards of Creativity & Innovation, Communication & Collaboration, Research & Information Fluency, and Critical Thinking & Problem Solving & Decision-Making. Our afternoon sessions will be spent in smaller groups based on the individual needs of the teacher.  Time will be provided for you to identify opportunities for effective technology integration you can embed into your current practice and to build activities and lessons that can be implemented in your classrooms.
