iPad Implementation Professional Learning Session

I have recently been asked to deliver a professional learning session regarding the implementation of an iPad rollout for schools. I’m really excited about sharing my thoughts and offering some solutions to some of the issues schools face when moving towards implementing iPads in their schools. I am even more excited about involving some of my students as presenters at this Professional Learning session as two grade 4 students asked if they could demo their favourite app.

Here are the details of the professional learning session.

I came across this website while searching for apps to help teach students about fractions in a fun and interactive way. Not only did I find exactly what I was looking for but,  did so easily and without hassle so I thought I would share this page for a few reasons.

1) This website is organised and easy to navigate around. The “app list” section groups apps in categories such as Apps for Photographers, Apps for Musicians, Apps for filmmakers etc. Inside each category, you will find a collection of great apps to get you started.

2) The “appguides” section is also a great way to find a selection of categorised apps.iPhone/iPad AppGuides by AppAdvice.

3) This website also has up to date news about Apple products for those who like to stay informed.
