There's an App for That - Apps in Education

Tuesday and Thursday June 5 and 7, 2012
1:00 - 2:00pm EDT

Leaders: Matthew Evins, Miami University of Ohio, Steve Kaufman and Tim Lombardo, Ashland University

There is no shortage of apps on Apple's App Store or Google's Chrome Store. However, how does an instructor sort out which ones are great to use in the classroom? This workshop will showcase some amazing apps and ideas for assignments that can be created using them. We will provide attendees with a breakdown and description of each app, as well as some examples for specific assignments / lessons that be used in your classroom. A variety of different subject areas will be covered.

This workshop is free to TLT Group Individual Members.  Check your institution's status here if you have your membership through an institutional subscription.

Participants for this workshop should sign-in 15 minutes early for tech instructions and to meet others in the group; they also have the option of remaining online for a half-hour follow-up discussion immediately after the workshop.

All of the TLT Group’s online offerings include use of “low threshold” tools, examination of controversial issues, options for participants with a range of experience, and suggestions for assessment as you integrate what you’ve learned into your repertoire.
