This workshop will explore practical ideas on how iPads can facilitate collaboration and foster creativity through personalised learning journeys and workflows and will develop the skills necessary to integrate iPads successfully into lessons and enhance learning outcomes. We will look at how the multi-modal device can help learners access higher order thinking skills, cater to multiple intelligences and create new ways of working, putting the learning right in the students’ hands.
Joe Dale will walk you through how easily iOS devices can be used for creating multimedia content including narrated slideshows, digital audio and moviemaking. You will also have time to plan a set of lessons in small groups integrating the use of iPad apps and showcase your outcomes together. You will have plenty of opportunity to create multimedia content such as animations and screencasts as well as more complex techniques such as greenscreening and appsmashing. We will also be exploring the educational potential of QR codes in the classroom and facilitating formative assessment through interactive exercises and classroom voting.
