The Invisible iPad - Significant Learning Experiences Without Actually Losing Your iPad

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Visual representations of knowledge, creativity and collaboration? Our challenge with technology such as the iPad is that because it has so much versatile functionality, the user is faced with a real dilemma of losing sight of what the tool is meant to accomplish. The importance is to focus less on how we are using iPads and Apps, and more on why we use them and what we are able to achieve through their use. When we are able to properly strategize our learning objectives and goals, the technology becomes secondary to meaningful learning outcomes; this is how how it becomes the Invisible iPad. This awareness enables students to become active and independent learners. When students are empowered to concretize their learning goals, and focus on a final learning product, only then can the technology become invisible allowing students to focus on success and excellence. After leaving the session, participants will have forgotten all about the iPad (since it will be invisible) and instead approach the use of technology as a definitive tool to help their students achieve significant learning experiences.
