iCreate vs. iConsumption

Presentation Description: Many argue that the iPad is the premiere consumption device at this time but it isn’t very good at creating. I want to walk through some thoughts to battle that thinking. Creating on the iPad is different but it is an effective creation device. The very nature of the device itself and how we interface with it provide for a uniquely creative environment. Effectively creating on the iPad requires a different workflow from traditional computers. Once users get proficient with that workflow, the iPad becomes an amazing creation device!

Presentation Title: Project Based Learning in Hand

Presentation Description: Handheld computers are everywhere. From mobile phones to handheld games, it’s a very familiar sight to see people of all ages gazing into screens that they can hold. Schools are discovering that handhelds like iPod touch and iPad make great learning tools. In fact, handhelds can play a big part in Project Based Learning. Not only do projects motivate students because they use exciting handheld technology, but they also lend themselves to student voice and choice. Watch to be inspired to bring Project Based Learning into your classroom, learn strategies for creating effective Driving Questions, and see how an iOS handheld can play a role in the the planning, research/investigation, and presentation of projects.
