Hacking The Humanities: The iPad and Interdisciplinary Studies

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

When we look at technology integration on the classroom level, the big push appears to be towards using the iPad in S.T.E.M. studies. Participants in Hack The Humanities: The iPad and Interdisciplinary Studies will learn how the iPad can be used in the humanities. This session will demonstrate how iOS and other technologies put the Arts into S.T.E.A.M. Students in the humanities can use the iPad to go beyond studying art, literature, philosophy and music. Using the right apps, they learn to interact with classroom material. Examples of student-generated material will be shown along with lessons that are easily adaptable across the humanities curriculum. Throughout this presentation, participants will see how the iPad can transform assessment. With a little creativity, teachers will be able to move beyond the traditional essay or test to assess understanding. They’ll see that suddenly students have new ways to express that they “get it.” Demonstrations of multi-touch books, video production and other technologies will allow attendees will leave with ideas on how they implement in their classrooms immediately.
