The iPad has proven its tremendous potential to revolutionize the way students learn and teachers teach. This versatile teaching and learning tool can become a textbook, calculator, drawing pad, interactive map, or speaking dictionary - all with an intuitive swipe of a finger. The iPad brings the world (by way of the Internet) literally into your hands.

On the course website is an iPad simulator, developed by the instructor, which simulates an iPad on a PC or Mac, so owning an iPad is not necessary to complete the course. Scores of curricular apps, from the tens of thousands available (for all grade levels and most subjects), are demonstrated on the simulator.

This course will focus on the classroom use of educational apps (many of them free) now available. The iPad is a perfect way to integrate technology into the classroom and into the hands of students; this course will help you do just that!

All assignments may be completed without classroom participation. Instructor support is readily available by email and phone. Additional information may be found at: www.steveyoungfpu.net
