Welcome Back!

Have you been honing your XGame skills? The last two days of Xcamp are approaching quickly. During these final days, we will learn how students create media-rich products and author content with Mac OSx and the MacBook Air/Pro. You will have the opportunity to explore iLife creativity suite and iBooks Author using MacBook laptops.

Get Your Gear:

  1. Fully charged Macbook Laptop
  2. Fully charged iPad
  3. Critical content ideas and resources
  4. Headphones (w/mic if possible)
  5. Remember you Apple ID and password

**BEFORE you arrive, please download and install the free iBooks Author software onto your Macbook.**

The 411:

In the same teams as in June, we will meet as before: Bolin Admin Center 1565 W. Main Street Lewisville, TX 75067 from 8:00 - 3:30 daily. Breakfast and snacks will be provided and lunch will be on your own (you will have about an hour).

Tools explored will be:

  • Mon 8/5 - iLife Creativity with iPhoto, iMovie, Garageband
  • Tue 8/6 - iBooks Author & Student Creation using MackBook laptops

What about: Where will you sit? Will there be morning announcements? Will there be fierce competition? You will have to show up to find out...

Things to Ponder:

Before we meet, start to consider how the use of creativity tools can transform your classroom to meet the district's strategic design mission to provide engaging, innovative experiences to our students everyday. In what content/lessons could you incorporate such tools?

Are you ready for the XGames Championship?
