EDU 960 iPads in Education
Explores the broad applications and utility of the iPad as a classroom teaching device. Practical instruction provides strategies and skills for effective classroom integration.
This intensive course is designed for classroom educators to explore, and practice with, the Apple iPad and how the integration of this device into their practice impacts their teaching, student learning, and classroom dynamics. Tools/apps to be explored and used, for example, range from grade and content specific apps to “office” apps, from iBooks to Book Creator, and from movie creation to presentation apps, and much more. Students will also learn the complex nature of how to manage the workflow from student to teacher and back. Within a peer learning model, students will design, implement and evaluate a classroom activity that incorporates one or more apps.
A 32GB iPad is included in the course. You will have the option to upgrade the memory to 128GB or select a 128GB iPad Mini 4 for an additional charge. The iPad 6, which is included in your tuition, is compatible with the Apple Pencil (not included).
Note that participation in this course requires wireless home internet access to be able to complete the assignments.
*Participants in the online version of the course will have several mandatory, synchronous, video conference sessions. The dates and times are listed on each course registration page.

It will make it easier for me to share information with my students and allows me to better differentiate my instruction.N.C., World Languages Teacher
I thought that the readings were a good way to think through the inner workings of the implementation of the iPads in our classroom. I enjoyed digging a little deeper into this thinking.A.G., Elementary Teacher
This was a great way to learn the ins and outs of the iPad.D.H., Science Teacher
I really enjoyed this course! I was someone who has had brief interactions with the ipad, but never owned one before. I found the pace of this course very comfortable, and the instructor, James Gates, was always available to answer any questions I had. This course showed me what an ipad is capable of and gave me so many ideas to bring back to my classroom.M.P., Elementary Teacher
This course was extremely valuable. I will use almost everything I learned from this course in my classroom.A.K.
I will use the iPad regularly to impact not only my workload, but my students' experiences in my classroom!L.S., Language Arts Teacher
Well worth it!! I've learn a great deal in such a short amount of time. I can now navigate an iPad with confidence and ease!J.C., Reading Specialist
I learned so much in such a short amount of time. I appreciated that the assignments could be directly connected to and involve my teaching so it really made it worthwhile for me to complete not just because it was an assignment but because I could use it again in the future.T.V., Science Teacher
