Have you ever taken your iPad to a workshop or conference and felt left out because “things on iOS don’t work the same way?” Much of the edtech professional development for educators has been focused on laptops and using web-based applications like Google Apps for Education. Over the years, those of us who work with iPads have often had to learn in isolation and cobble together workflows to make iPads fit with established systems in schools. I get your frustration! This is why we’re excited to announce that the EdTechTeam will now be offering world class iOS professional development experiences for educators.
The iOS Summits are engaging events, rich with hands-on learning. Over one or two days, they focus on using iOS devices for Education and maintain the same high-energy, fast-paced, and fun style of other EdTechTeam events. Each summit features inspiring keynotes, highlights world-class featured speakers, and incorporates engaging breakout sessions focused on authentic integration of the tools with pedagogy. Sessions cover all levels of iOS adoption ranging from small classroom sets to 1:1 rollouts in both elementary and secondary classrooms. The iOS Summit also includes a hands-on technical strand for those supporting iPad initiatives, as well as sessions covering leadership and school administrative components.
iPads are all-in-one creation tools and we look forward to giving educators an outstanding experience focused on using the iPad to leverage learning in the classroom.
