Ever get the feeling that reaching every student in your class, every day puts you in a race against the clock? Make one-to-one instruction a reality with meaningful teacher-student interaction using your iPad! This presentation will be participant-centered; your needs and interests will drive the direction of your learning, and you’ll have opportunities to collaborate with other teachers from settings similar to your own. Learn how to maximize your use of student iPads through engaging teaching videos, projects, and presentations. Get in on the ground floor of differentiated instruction with the help of straightforward apps like Screen Chomp or Educreations, or ramp up the caliber of your flipped presentations by discovering more about the features of Explain Everything or learning how to create those cool RSA videos you’re seeing everywhere. Say hello to your new best friends: Socrative, Dropbox, Pocket, Confer, and Google Apps for Education. Integrate valuable, practical formative assessment and manage student workflow and feedback by evaluating those options, and then learning which structures work best for you and how to get them (or keep them) up and running in your classroom. Hear firsthand the benefits of flipping your instruction in ANY elementary classroom environment, regardless of location, financial resources, or degree of tech support! Wherever you are on the iPad continuum, you’ll leave with some valuable takeaways about how to best differentiate for your variety of learners. With advice from elementary iPad pilot project veterans (and 2012 Summit attendees) who can help you avoid pitfalls and give you the 411 on successful differentiation techniques, you truly can get on the fast track to interacting with each child on a daily basis- and you won’t even have to clone yourself.
