 iPad Workflow

Using iPads to impact learning can be challenging at times, particularly when workflow is a barrier to progress.

  •  How do you share materials?
  • What does workflow look like in the classroom?
  • Are we maximising the impact of iPads or are they simply an expensive research tool?
  • How do we encourage ‘content creation’ rather than ‘content consumption’?
  • How can you provide effective feedback?
  • How can I use the iPad to improve workflow for teachers as well as students?

Regardless of your current set up, the session is tailored to your needs and adapted to systems you already have in place.
