So, you have purchased some iPads for school and found some great apps to use in the classroom – but now managing, purchasing and installing apps is becoming cumbersome. Apple Configurator is ideal for preparing multiple iPads, installing apps and defining settings.
As more schools decide to introduce iPads into their classrooms, teachers are not only asking, ‘Where do I start?’ but ‘How can I get the best out of what an iPad has to offer?’. iPads A-Z is a one day workshop that equips teachers to become confident and creative in their use of iPads.
A great number of mathematical apps have been created for Primary School students. iPads in Action: Mathematics will outline and review the various styles of apps that have been designed and discuss how best to use them in classroom settings.
Students are captivated by multimedia experiences and enjoy reading eBooks. This workshop will demonstrate and review a variety of iPad apps that enable students to cleverly capture, create and share their own digital stories.
