With the influx of iPads into primary classrooms many teachers are wondering how to go beyond the “drill and kill” math app. Using her newly released book “Innovate with iPad: Lessons to Transform Learning in the Classroom”Kristen Wideen will show how iPads can be used in purposeful and authentic ways by exploring open-ended creative math applications. You will explore a variety of apps that support best practice and help to create a classroom that is innovative, collaborative, creation and choice driven. After examples are shared and "how to" demonstrations are given, participants will then have some hands on learning with various content creation apps. Participants will experience the transformation that occurs in a math program when technology is used in a purposeful and authentic way. Participants will leave with a variety of math lesson ideas that can be used immediately that will meet the unique and individual learning styles of their students.The following free apps are needed to participate full in the workshop: Draw and Tell, number pieces, geoboard, Pic Collage, Popplet lite
