Teaching and learning with iPads in classrooms is a 6-weeks program for educators to prepare them on how to successfully integrate iPads into their classrooms. The program is designed to equip participants with the technical and pedagogical skills to create engaging and effective experiences in which learning is connected, collaborative, creative, and personal for every individual. Participants will understand the complex nature of how to manage the workflow from student to teacher and back. Within the collaborative learning model, participants will learn how to design, implement, and evaluate classroom activities and assessments that incorporate different applications. By the end of the program, participants will be able to create an academic argument about using iPads for teaching and learning.
The course will be delivered over 6 full day workshops (9 a.m. to 3 p.m.) on Sundays from 15 January through 19 February 2023.
