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

This course will focus on a wide variety of educational apps and their use in everyday lessons, including an interactive survey of popular apps. A review of iPad technology and a 'tips and tricks' section rounds out the course. 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!

Upon registering, the instructor will mail a physical workbook at no additional cost. All assignments may be completed without classroom participation. Instructor support is always readily available by email and phone. Additional information at: http://www.ipad.steveyoungfpu.net/

This course is applicable towards the Classroom Technology Integration Certificate.

Just as my mother lived from the dawn of the airplane to watching men walk on the moon, I’ve witnessed the computer shrink in size from a locomotive to a fingernail; from costing more than a house to less than a pair of shoes. In 35 years I’ve worked as a teacher, lecturer, trainer, and technology coordinator, always striving to find the best way to teach. If a pencil does the job, use a pencil. Simple. But the world is not simple, and there are things students need to comprehend that require a depth of knowledge best reached through the power of technology. Never before have I seen so many teachers marvel at how technology has enhanced their classroom - it’s still fun to watch the light bulbs go on!
