iPad for Administrators

The iPad is a transformative device that fundamentally changes the way we interact with technology. The hands-on workshop will acquaint school principals with the iPad and its potential as a tool to be used by students, teachers and administrators. The participants will leave the workshop with a package of materials that may be used for self-study or staff development.


June 2014 update: notes and materials will be posted on June 27th, 2014 after the full day presentation at the 2nd Annual LBP Edtech Summer Institute.

November 2013 update: iPad Initiatives is a new workshop I am giving to  LBPSB elementary schools this fall and winter. Each workshop is customized to each school (for example: here’s the materials and links for St. Charles Elementary).
