We had a really great iPad professional development on Saturday. The 8th grade math teacher at Kennedy School is doing a flipped classroom model and using iPads to help facilitate student learning. Her other 8th grade team members want to get on board with this new way of learning and allow the students to use the iPads throughout the day in all of their classes.
We provided four hours of training to
these teachers on Saturday, December 15. Guess they were really
interested if they gave up a Saturday before the winter holidays!
training focused on developing procedures and classroom management
routines since the students will now be taking the iPads from class to
class during the school day. We also set up email, created DropBox
accounts, and practiced with several apps that would be appropriate to
support instruction and student learning.
I know they
look very serious in this picture since they are working on their
procedures - but they really were excited about beginning a new
adventure with their students!
