It was a great opportunity for people to learn from each other, as well as share the digital-age learning enhanced through technology in our district. My favorite part is talking with students as they share their projects. I'm always picking up something new!
On our Showcase Website, we have included links to reflections from staff who incorporated iPads for both student learning and instruction, Interactive White Boards and Screencasting for instruction, and Chromebooks for student learning. They provide great insight into how the devices have been incorporated into classrooms as well as tips for others interested in using the technology in the future. We hope this will be a resource for our staff and others as we move forward with iSquared in 2013-14.
