Thursday, February 23 - Dr. Ann George - "Lessons Learned from the Use of i-Pad Technology to Meet Practicum Requirements"

Ann GeorgeThe purpose of this presentation is to describe a pilot project that implemented i-Pad technology to achieve practicum requirements. During the Fall 2011 semester, seven practicum students were assigned University i-Pads that they used to complete assignments, instruct students, video lessons and participate in instructional coaching sessions. As a result of this project, many lessons were learned and these experiences will be shared with attendees. A simulated instructional coaching session, using face-time technology, will also be demonstrated along with examples of i-Pad, i-Pod and i-Phone touch apps that can be used for differentiating instruction.
