Innovate with iPad

We are so excited to have two outstanding educational leaders, Karen Lirenman and Kristen Wideen, sharing with us in this webinar! They are prepared to inspire and "wow" us with ways to get students and teachers creating with iPads.

Webinar description: In this webinar, participants will learn to use iPads to transform teaching and learning. Karen Lirenman and Kristen Wideen, authors of Innovate with iPad, will share five key content creation iPad apps and how they can be used for numeracy, literacy, socials, science, and student self-assessment. They will explore what's possible with iPad and how it can be used as a tool for content creations instead of a tool for content consumptions. Each participant will leave the session with new ideas of how to transform teaching and learning with iPad.

Karen is an award winning primary school teacher who is transforming education by connecting her students with the world through Twitter, blogs, and video conferencing. She takes a hands-on approach to teaching by including inquiry, projects, and the maker mindset in her classroom. Her students choose how they learn, show, and share their knowledge. Karen has taught in both Australia and Canada. Karen is an Apple Distinguished Educator and a Google for Education Certified Innovator.

Kristen has spent her career teaching and engaging primary school children in the United States and Canada. Through her innovative, student-driven projects, she teaches classes to take chances and develop the skills necessary to succeed in the twenty-first century. Kristen encourages her students to create, collaborate, and be open to trying new things in her classroom every day. She is an Apple Distinguished Educator and enjoys inspiring educators to use technology in innovative ways by speaking at conferences.
