Teaching with Tablets and Technology – a Focus at the CAMLE Conference

Is everyone is talking tablets?  

When we get together at our monthly CAMLE Board meetings, it seems we all know a colleague or teacher who is either starting to use or has been using iPads in his classroom. That’s why we have a strong strand of iPad and other mobile device sessions at our upcoming 2012 CAMLE Colorado Schools to Watch Conference held at Stuart Middle School on Saturday, November 3 in Commerce City, Colorado.

Sessions on iPads in the Middle Grades

Among the 35 sessions each attendee will have to choose from throughout the day, several will focus on iPad technology use in the classroom:

  • 15 iOS Apps for Teachers & Leaders in 60 Minutes
  • Launching a 1:1 iPad Program in the Middle Grades
  • Excite, Ignite, & Engage in Science Class Using iPads

Others will integrate the use of technology to support student learning:

  • Using Social Network Sites for Always-On Professional Learning
  • Smart Phones In The Band Room?…Why Not!
  • Inspire, Mangage, Reward Students with YouTopia
  • The Access Center: Providing Dynamic Support in a Least Restrictive Environment
  • Ending Social Promotion with Prevention and Credit Recovery

Kids LOVE tablet technology!

Because of tablets’ intuitive interface and touchscreen capabilities, iPads and other handheld devices are growing in popularity. Given the choice between reading e-books or print books, children prefer e-books, a new, exploratory field study shows. Children who read e-books also retain and comprehend just as much as when they read print books, the study also suggests.

We are looking forward to our Schools to Watch sharing their best practices for technology integration at our conference.
