Fifteen teachers and staff met at SMA for Tech Workshop 2014 on October 10, which focused on looking in depth at iMovie and Adobe Voice (apps that can be used for video activities and assessments), Office 365 iPad apps, and Pinterest and Pocket for web research curation.
Attendees created their own videos, set up Pinterest and Pocket accounts, and learned some tips regarding the use of Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps on their iPads. But the teachers were most excited to have time to explore the possibilities of how to further incorporate these tools into their classes, both for students and themselves. Everyone left with a smile and a set of tools or tips that they could put to use right away.
