The reality is, primary classrooms are not created equal: whether with one iPad or a 1:1 initiative; a SMARTboard or just a projector and a document camera. It will always be you, the teacher, who makes the difference. Learn the many uses of having one device in your classroom and how this can enrich students' learning. Learn to create interactive lessons and projects to produce successful, enthusiastic readers and writers... with what you have. Leave with a list of apps that will help benefit student's learning on an iPad, how to create digital stories, and other takeaways to benefit the primary classroom. Time for app sharing provided.
