Tablets in My Classroom... Now What?

So, your students will have access to more tablets. Exciting, right? But it might be a little scary too. Just what are you going to do with those students and those tools? It is important to remember the tablets are tools just like a pencil and a textbook. You probably don't structure a lesson so that students are using their pencils or their textbooks during the entire period. And you shouldn't feel like students have to use the tablets the entire period either.

Now that weight is off of your shoulders, how can you take advantage of the tablet as a tool in your classroom? This training will give you multiple options for doing just that.

This training will give you options for taking advantage of whatever tool your students might have. Note: You DO NOT need a tablet to participate in this training.


Class will be held on Thursday, June 5th or Wednesday, July 2nd.
