The One iPad or few iPads Classroom: Strategies for Successful Integration (Grades K-12)
How can one iPad be used effectively in the classroom? You will be surprised how even one (or a few) iPads can be used as tools to support instruction. Participants will learn how to use an iPad with a projector and/or SMART Board and one computer. They will discover that having less than a classroom set encourages student collaboration during small group instruction and with learning stations, for example. Participants will examine ideas for projects that maximize built-in functionality, such as the camera and microphone. In addition, a variety of implementation strategies will be shared that incorporate classroom computers and/or laptop carts. Participants will leave this session with practical ideas that can be integrated into instruction in any classroom or content area.
Kristine Scharaldi is an experienced teacher and outstanding staff developer in the area of technology integration in K-12 classrooms, who is back to Kean by popular demand.
Kristine’s workshops will be held from 8:30-2:00 in Kean Hall Room 225 at the Kean University, Union Campus. A continental breakfast will be served and participants may bring a brown bag lunch.
We strongly encourage registrants to “bring your own device” (BYOD), but some iPads are available, if needed. Note that workshop sessions are limited to 20-25 registrants to allow for ongoing interactive hands-on experiences.
