Objectives, Schedule and Description of Sessions





Participants will:

  • Develop expertise in the use of iPads, a variety of applications, project based learning and challenge based learning.
  •  'Flip the workshop' by accessing a wiki, which contains information about the workshop, sessions, videos and student exemplars
  • Reflect on on how to integrate  iPads / ICT in their educational settings.

  • Participate in a Google Community, developing a Professional Learning Community or Community of Practice This Google Community will provide an opportunity to get to know each other prior to the workshop.






The first part of this event was recorded as a Hangout on Air (HoA). Vance had set up a laptop PC to manage the stream and was walking around the room with an iPad that was participating in the event and recording video and audio. The hub PC was muted and Vance was using earbuds on the iPad to prevent remote participants in the HoA from intruding on the live session (but they could interact with Vance and Vance could interact with them sotto voce but that interaction appears in the recording). Surprisingly the bandwidth held out and the experiment worked in concept, though the next stage will clearly need to address managing the handheld iPad camera movement. If you get dizzy the recording is worth listening to.


The recorded HoA is also embedded in a blog post of the Learning2gether portion of the event here:
