Welcome to the iPad Creative Challenge Workshop!

Do you have limited numbers of iPads? Are you in a BYOD / 1:1 learning environment? Are you looking for ways to meaningfully use iPads to support student collaboration, and teaching, learning, and assessment in literacy and the Language Arts?

This workshop is designed to empower teachers, regardless of the number of devices in their classrooms, to explore possible ways to integrate iPads into their Literacy and the Common Core Language Arts curriculum. Participants will be shown five successful examples of individual and collaborative iPad literacy projects run in Australian schools, and invited to collaboratively explore one in detail through an iPad Creative Challenge.

As a result of attending this workshop, participants will
  • Understand how to use the Substitution Augmentation Modification Redefinition Model to support their professional growth in relation to the implementation of iPad learning projects in their classrooms.
  • Gain confidence and integration skills through a hands-on collaborative learning challenge, exploring and creating an iPad literacy project which relates to their current teaching and professional learning needs
  • Contribute tips and teaching ideas to a collaborative online document showcasing successful iPad literacy and Language Arts project ideas, which can be adapted to suit their curriculum and grade levels.
  • Commit to taking on one iPad literacy challenge in their own classrooms following the conference.
