Teachers Untethered: Life in an iPad/Apple TV Classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Transform your instruction by becoming an “untethered” teacher! Teachers currently have a problem when utilizing technology in their classroom; many of the most popular tools (laptops, document cameras, interactive whiteboards, etc.) end up tethering the instructor to their equipment rather than allowing them to interact directly with students. During this session the presenters will demonstrate how iPads and Apple TV’s can work seamlessly in an instructional setting as a teacher presentation device, freeing them to interact more directly with their students.

Experience how the iPad and Apple TV provide an ideal situation for teachers to become untethered and move about the room freely to monitor and coach students while teaching a lesson. Improve instructional pedagogy by seeing what students see and gain the ability to provide instant feedback to students while moving about the room. The teacher’s position in the room can impact the dynamics and feel of a lesson.

Learn how to easily import, create, and share instructional resources for Common Core aligned lessons from the iPad using apps such as DropBox, Google Drive, or Explain Everything.

See how the iPad and Apple TV increases the amount of student engagement and interactivity during the lesson. How students can share their own thinking and learning from the iPad as the screen is mirrored via the Apple TV – allowing the students to become the teacher!

During the session, attendees will have an opportunity to experience the feel of presenting and instructing while being “untethered” from the font of the room. Be sure to bring your iPads!

Stories and video of classroom instruction showing how this model works in practice will be shared, from both standard and “flipped” classroom implementations. Presentation content, lesson plans and classroom procedures will be available to participants online through the presenters website. Whether your are a beginner or intermediate user of iPads and Apple TVs, this session will meet your needs and answer your questions.

Co-presented with Robyn Griffith
