iPad for Educators

How to integrate the iPad into lesson/therapy plans.

Please note:  This class is designed, developed, and owned by a Witz Education Trainer and is not authorized or sponsored by Apple Inc.

Schools are always looking to be on the cutting edge of technology to be able to best prepare their students. Unfortunately, often educators are not fully trained on how to use the technology or integrate it into their classes. The iPad is a relatively easy technology to use and many students have one of their own. This course assumes participants understand how to use the iPad and focuses on how to use it in a learning/coaching environment. This training goes beyond simply learning to use the iPad and it’s apps, it has a focus on instruction on how to integrate the iPad into curriculum and create lesson plans.

To ensure we address the unique needs of the different educators, a pre-course survey will be sent to participants upon registration.
