This course is for educators looking to go beyond a basic understanding of iPad use in the classroom. Learn how to manage your students' workflow, and take advantage of the iPad's advanced capabilities, including productivity apps, assessment apps and subject-specific and special-needs apps. The course is arranged around 'app task challenges' that provide an opportunity for teachers to use apps in combination to create sophisticated projects and interactive presentations.

While Powerpoint and Prezi are options, they are nowhere near the only options, with which to create interactive presentations for use in today's classroom. Browser-based applications present countless presentation features to help foster student engagement, interaction, assessment, and communication. This course will explore the web's potential for interactivity, including slideshows and videos, back channeling, 3-D, animations, interactive whiteboards, screencasting, online debates, collaboration, and brainstorming tools. All applications introduced in the course are free, with iPad-approved options available for those teachers who use them in their classrooms.

What is "wearable technology" and how does it apply to your classroom? Wearable technology, or wearables, wearable devices, even tech togs-consists of clothing and accessories that incorporate advanced technologies that have practical functions and features.

Educators will leave this course with the ability to identify and use wearables for various learning activities, design lesson plans that integrate learning activities that involve wearables, explore the history of wearables and learning, and understand privacy implications with wearables.
