I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but kids love devices! A collective goal as parents and teachers, has long been to harness that love and use it for good, not evil, to inspire kids to create, not just consume. To that end, I’ve been working on a special edtech project with Apple Education, – Engaging Primary Learners With iPad – to help teachers use devices to make writing fun & and more engaging for kids.
Using Apple iPad Pro, I’ve collated my best hacks, tips and tricks into a workshop that will run July 29.
The workshop covers ideas about how to use iPads to boost student engagement and encourage interactive, purposeful and collaborative experiences, when it comes to creative writing. It’s part recorded tutorials and insight into my process, part live Q&A.
Lots of educators in the years 3-6 primary classroom are already using devices to help enhance literacy among learners and inspire creativity, while challenging kids to solve problems using their own unique talents.
As well as being lots of fun, I’ve discovered the built-in features on digital devices include ingenious tools for brainstorming! They also help kids process texts and develop their creative writing skills.
I’d love you to join me for this free session.
If you or anyone you know is a primary educator and might be interested in engaging primary learners with iPad, please let them know about the online sessions on 29 July.
