iPad Apps for Creativity

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We will start by exploring a variety of apps, some that lend themselves to learning content such as math facts or spelling words and others that can be used in open-ended content creation such as storytelling or photography. Then we will link these apps in design to your curriculum. We will explore opportunities for mapping to the curriculum where students are creating, contributing and engaging globally on both the iPad and other mobile technologies.

Participants will:

  • Explore a subset of apps from a recommended list of apps
  • Consider affordances/constraints as a way to evaluate apps
  • Contribute to a common sharing space where we’ll list recommended apps and links to recommended app-tivities
  • Consider and comment on apps and app-tivities in the common sharing space
  • Explore ways where students can create content
  • Identify ways to connect students globally
