iPad Symposium 2013

The Center for Literacy has organized an exciting array of workshops and hands-on sessions to help Ohio teachers and administrators identify and share best practices for integrating iPads the preK-12 classroom. Join some of Ohio's leading iPad educators to learn activities and assessment strategies aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and the National Educational Technology Standards for Teachers and Students.

The iPad Symposium is an intense one-day series of hands-on workshops designed to inspire and equip educators to facilitate student digital learning projects using iPads. Participants should BYOI (bring your own iPad) to the symposium. The iPad Symposium is led and facilitated by the Center for Literacy in conjunction with the most talented educators & administrators in Ohio! Many of our presenters are Apple Distinguished Educators.
