iPads and Google Drive to Engage Elementary Students: A Beginner's Guide

Updated: Sep 10, 2019

SESSION DESCRIPTION

So your elementary school has projectors, iPads and Google Classroom... now what?! This session will focus on how several basic iPad apps (camera, iMovie) and Google Drive can enhance student learning, encourage collaboration & self-assessment, and connect students with home & community. Through real classroom examples in an interactive format, teachers will be inspired to try something new and be reassured that you don't need to be a tech genius & you don't need a full class set of devices to use technology effectively in the elementary classroom.

Bring an iPad or computer to the session.
