A Tale of 2.0 Cities – Leveraging iPads, Tablets and Mobile Devices For Better Humanities Instruction and Common Core Integration

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

How do we best leverage the technology today’s students are familiar and engaged with? How do we use tablets and other mobile devices to motivate students to read, write, and think critically? How do we encourage learning that is truly social and collaborate? How can technology help districts meet the goals of the Common Core? This session will explore methods for integrating technology such as peer- to-peer collaboration, social media, and video and audio tools to satisfy Common Core standards in the Humanities. Attendees will explore practical implementation ideas that will simultaneously engage students while also meeting Common Core objectives. At the core of the session is the proven pedagogy that can be implemented and augmented through the use of iPads and other mobile devices. Participants will learn how technology can be woven into their existing lesson plans; how teachers can teach classic and modern texts with technology; and how the use of iPads can motivate students to read and write at progressively higher levels.
