 This conference is intended to providespecific ideas, strategies, and ideas toeducators about how iPads cansupport learning, instruction,assessment, and management in aschool setting. We recognize thatthese devices, barely over a year old,could be “game-changers” that canreshape teaching and learning in waysthat other devices rarely have. Theirrelatively low operating cost, flexibility,and simple user interface seem anatural fit for schools. This conference will keep Michiganeducators on the cutting edge to seehow new tools can support learning,and potentially, reshape what we doand focus on in schools. Otherwise,free apps for hands-on sessions arefine.
