Credits: 2 Credits
PD Hours: 80 Hours
Length: 4 Weeks

The iPad craze is spreading like wildfire, and it’s your job to light the fire of inquiry between this innovative technology and your students. Through this class, teachers will explore the basic working of the iPad, discover and utilize Apps and resources for use with integration in every aspect of the art room.

Assignments focus on teaching tools and resources for the instructor to use with students and hands on ideas for students to use with the iPad. These tools will have students running to their core classes sharing their creative knowledge learned in your art classroom. You do not need a classroom set of iPads to take this course, you will simply need one iPad and the willingness to learn. In fact, we’ll even give you some strategies to help fund a class set of iPads to implement all of the wonderful ideas.

    Notes from past participants:

     

    This class was an excellent introduction to using iPads in the classroom, as well as an inspiration and help in planning lessons, finding and trying out apps and networking with other Art educators. I now feel ready to begin the new year with this great technology!

    Very thorough. Lots of great ideas shared by all. Enjoyed the discussion boards…felt like a real classroom with great energy being shared. The assignments were appropriate, not busy work. They forced me to get to know the iPad and explore all of its capabilities. I also came out of it with lesson plans I can put to work immediately this next school year. Also, great to get ideas from others on what they are doing, too.
