Event description

Description

Professional Development day with iPads & Apple apps!

Our Professional Learning & Development Consultant, Karen Pastro, will be taking you through the functionality & productivity capabilities of the iPad’s latest operating system. You will also experience the powerful and intuitive interface and management tools available through Apple Classroom and be introduced to valuable resources in support of learning and teaching, available in iBooks and iTunesU.

As the sessions progress, we will explore the updated tools in a selection of the Apple suite apps such as Keynote, Pages, iMovie and Clips, through a literacy lens, with a focus on digital writing. Using a methodology of ‘exploration, familiarisation and task specific’, we will start to consider the design of possible workflows for learning activities, to promote and foster student-created content.

Prerequisites

This workshop utilises the iPad and needs to be running the latest updated operating system, to ensure all the tools are available on the iPad and through the apps. Your iPad also needs to have the latest versions of the Apple suite of apps (i.e. iMovie, Keynote, Pages, Numbers, GarageBand and Clips).

If you do not have an iPad capable of running the latest iOS, please request a borrowed one.
