iStreamline-Simple Teaching Ideas for iPads in the Classroom

pattycake(I recently attended the SC Ed Tech 2013 Conference. One of the great reasons I like this conference is that it is in my town so I don’t have to pay for a hotel! The other reason is that I connect with so many other educators. I always pick up something new from a session and if I don’t learn something new, I’m always looking at how the material is presented in order to hone my own presentation skills. For the next few days I plan on sharing the notes that I took from the sessions.)

My Takeaway:

I liked the idea of taking sound out of videos and letting the students come up with their own dialogue. I think this would encourage creativity and imagination.

Do you have students do this? If so, what did you do? Please share.
