Final Project and Article Reviews

Your final project will be a culmination of your learning throughout the class regarding the integration of iPads in your classroom.

It should include 3 lesson plans for the integration of iPads into the curricular area(s) of your choice, using the apps of your choice.
Collaboration is a powerful tool and skill for us all to use so I encourage you to seek out a partner to help if that is of interest or appropriate.

You May wish to follow the format of documents on the ESU#3 Apps site found here:
http://esu3apps.wikispaces.com/

You may wish to make a movie explaining your lesson integration idea like this elementary art project

You may want to create a book in PDF or ePub format to share with your peers or your students
iPad Apps (1).ibooks

You may want to do something completely different to match your interest, teaching situation, grade level, or curricular area.
I am COMPLETELY open to you being creative and doing great things to share your knowledge of how to integrate iPads into your situation!
Just ask if you have questions or concerns but feel free to "think outside the box"!

When possible, please include connections to state standards, or national standards, or technology standards.
