This session will be devoted to exploring and sharing specific apps for use in the classroom.

Then participants will use and discuss apps that convert the iPad into virtual whiteboards and student response systems. (Did you say free Smartboards and Clickers anyone?) so they can experience how these two types of apps support learning, higher level thinking and the Common Core standards.  apps to be downloaded and used are Common Core, Educreations, Screen Chomp, and  Socrative and NearPod for teachers and students.

The iPad is a transformative tool for 21st Century learning. Art apps are at the forefront with so many different approaches to designing and compiling projects and eportfolios. Art is also being recognized as the STE(A)M in STEM as art is the creative force that links the S-T-E-M areas. During this session participants will explore and use free art apps and resources which can open the door to art for all students’ from PreK-12. Apps for drawing, painting, sketching, sculpting, animating, storytelling, notebooking, and more as well as museum, theory, and art history apps will be presented. Participants will have time to explore these dozens of free apps and resources and share with others how they can use different ones to create and share digital content across curricular areas. Links to all the resources will be posted so that all attendees will have access to them after class. This session has the Art teacher in mind but all teachers will find something for all levels and ages of learning. ~

A minimum of 6 participants is needed.  The session can be held at another location that is convenient to participants.
