At EdTechTeacher, we have been leading the way with our iPad professional development. Through webinars, blog posts, Summer Workshops, and our on-site professional development programs, we have worked with schools, school leaders, and educators from across the country as they work to transform their classrooms through successful iPad integration.
In the iPad T21 program, we focus on specific learning goals that promote critical-thinking, creativity, collaboration, and the creation of student-centric learning environments. We begin with hands-on exploration of specific apps and then transition to broader topics such as collaboration, workflow, assessment, and content curation over the course of this full-year program.
