iMac + iPhone + iPad = iLearn
Presenter: Mark Richardson, ICTeD Services
We probably all have a number of these iDevices. The interesting thing is how do you use them? What is the major use of your iPhone? A phone or as a device with apps / camera / e-reader / maps etc.? Do you use your iPad to just receive information? Or do you use it to reuse digital content, create new content and communicate and collaborate with others?
These devices can change the whole way we conduct our lives. One of those changes is that iDevices can make us all learners and contributors to the increasing repositories of human experience and knowledge.
Mark will cover how this 21st century teaching and learning is transforming schools and show how we can all better use our iDevices to become enthusiastic and engaged learners ourselves. In short iDevices are rapidly narrowing the gap between "school learning" and "out of school learning".
More and more iDevices are now being used by all for lifelong, 24/7 global learning. This is not just a revolution in schools, it is a revolution in your homes as well!
