Are you looking to engage and inspire your K-5 students through the use of iPad? Whether you have one iPad or twenty, this workshop is for you.  Using her newly released book “Innovate with iPad: Lessons to Transform Learning in the Classroom” co-authored with Kristen Wideen,  Karen Lirenman will provide a complete selection of clearly laid out engaging open-ended lessons to change the way you use iPad in the classroom. By simply downloading a few basic, open-ended creation apps, your students will engage in the learning process and demonstrate their newfound knowledge in the way that works best for them. It's differentiation at its best. Participants need to bring their own iPad and have the following apps preloaded: Pic Collage, Popplet or Popplet lite, Book Creator, Explain Everything and/or Draw and Tell to fully participate in this hands-on workshop. Whether you have one iPad or twenty, this workshop is for you.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • use open-ended creative apps in a variety of content areas to seamlessly make differentiation a reality in the classroom
  • give their students choice in how to best show what they know
  • use open-ended creative apps to empower your students to create their own content
