“How can teachers use iPads and apps to engage and teach students with greater success?”

Welcome to this dual course aimed to help you understand more about iPads in the classroom. This dual course consists of the following 5 hour courses:

  • Apps for Education
  • iPads in the Classroom

Integrate theories of Transformative Learning with technology to find the best apps to educate YOUR students. The integration of iPads and apps into education, may seem like a natural product of the times. However, successfully impacting students’ learning, requires a whole new level of teachers’ engagement and effort. Through this two-part online PD course, teachers will be equipped to go beyond using iPads and apps merely because someone else has recommended it and fully examine the true learning potential.

To this end, the first part of this online PD course has been specially designed for teachers who are just beginning to use iPads or those who are considering using them. Rather than a focus on learning to operate an iPad, this course will help teachers gain knowledge about different ways by which the iPad can be integrated into the process of learning. In addition to practical learning activities and ideas, it helps the teacher prepare the classroom environment and schedule for the introduction of iPads. It helps teachers to plan and organize iPad use, so that it is efficient and smooth.

Acknowledging the spread of other smartphones and tablets, the second part focuses on apps at a more general level, on platforms including iOS, Android and Windows. This course shows teachers how to take into account specifics, including logistics, management ability, content access, sound and image quality, all while evaluating individual apps. With an integrated approach, teachers can successfully consider an apps’ connections with curriculum content and the ability to amplify existing learning levels, while evaluating systematically their transformative learning capability.
