iPads. iLearning. iLibrary.

A session at Bring IT, Together [ECOO & OASBO]

  • Melanie Mulcaster

Friday 25th October, 2013

11:00am to 11:45am (EST)

A pilot to incorporate iPads as tools to support student learning within the context of the school library learning commons was launched by the Peel District School Board’s Curriculum and Instruction Support Service team in 2012-2013. Select teacher librarians across the K-12 spectrum were released for facilitated professional learning to develop an understanding how iPads could be used in collaborative environments to support and transform student thinking and learning. This session will outline the process of this experience, the challenges, setbacks and ultimate successes the team achieved using iPads as a learning tool in the library learning commons.
