Thank you so much for joining my workshop MOTIVATE, MANIPULATE AND MASH. I hope you will leave with many practical ideas to take back to your classroom.
Here is a video which captures how we use the iPads in the art room from app mashing, manipulating, reflecting, presenting, analyzing, peer feedback, to stop motion.
The creative possibilities are endless!
- iPad Gallery This page began last year, since I received my iPad cart. We use iPads daily. On this site you will see current projects, student work samples and a brief explanation of each task.
- iPad Research This explains my personal research into apps and the use of iPads in the classroom starting in 2012, Ghana.
