Knowing and Showing: Creating Digital Learning Artifacts with iPad

In this hands-on session, we will explore iPad strategies that help students visualize their learning through illustrating, annotating, and narrating. We will look at student examples of sketchnotes, infographics, and narration and then will give you a chance to try the strategies on your own. 

Please come with at least one of these apps downloaded onto your iPad to use during the session:

For Sketchnotes: Apple Notes (should already be on your iPads)  or Tayasui Sketches Free

For Infographics: Pic Collage Free or Pic Collage Kids (currently $1.99)

For Narration: Apple’s Clips app (Note: you will need a newer iPad or iPhone and iOS 10.3 in order to use this app.)


***I will post the link to the presentation slides here after the session is completed.
