Enhancing Clinical Anatomy with the iPad, Apps, and Mobile Learning
The powerful features of the iPad have finally given us the true independence of time and place in Education, but we need to rethink how we design for a learning environment where every student has a connected device in hand. Designing for mobile learning environments is more than just revamping your content to make it look good on a smaller screen. It’s designing learning activities that take advantage of the many benefits afforded to us by mobile devices. This session will present the results of a 1:1 device initiative where the iPad Air was used to enhance the Clinical Gross Anatomy college classroom through the use of apps, mobile media, cloud storage, and mobile learning designs. Initial results show that students are using the iPads to continue their learning outside of the formal classroom; and just as important, mobile learning designs are creating a learning environment where students are making and sharing their own learning materials. Gross anatomy dissection, by any measure, is one of the most transformational experiences of graduate health science education and should NOT be replaced. Rather, we believe that incorporating the iPad into the current curriculum engages student-team interaction, refines important anatomical connections and correlations, and provides unique contexts for the application of anatomy knowledge.

Put iPad to Work at Work
You may be using customized or specialized apps on the iPad, but a lot of what you do every day is outside of that (or could be). This session helps you explore beyond student engagement to the work you do every day in the office, at your desk, and in between classes while on the go. To improve your personal productivity, you’ll want to get as close as possible on the iPad to how you work on a computer. The more tips, tricks, and shortcuts you use every day to create content, the quicker you’ll get things done anywhere and anytime.

There are multiple types of children’s and young adult book apps available, including simple scanned versions, interactive animated versions, versions that allow for multiple reading levels or multiple levels of interaction, and recordable books. These apps can be utilized and adapted for a variety of purposes in classrooms and learning environments to help students increase their reading skills and access to text. A variety of available apps will be highlighted and examined, and guidelines will be provided for evaluating their quality as literary texts, and tools for use with special needs populations, and as high quality apps. Different reasons for using book apps in the classroom will be explored, including issues of accessibility, adaptability, literacy, and availability.

Coding for the Core: Using the iPad to Develop Computational Thinking and Mathematical Practices
There is a growing need to prepare students for a work force with skills in STEM and in particular Computer Science (CS) skills. By 2018 there is an expected shortage of 230,000 STEM workers with more than 70 percent of those in CS. Students are often first exposed to CS in high school; however, not all high schools include a CS course. Furthermore, females and minority students are underrepresented in these courses. Researchers are proposing that earlier exposure to CS education at the K-8 level can help increase enrollment and lifetime engagement in CS for all students. While computer programming is of increasing importance itself, it also provides an opportunity to explore the application of a variety of mathematical concepts in an interactive and engaging manner. CCSS mathematical topics such as ratios & proportional relationships, linear equations, functions, statistics, & probability can find exciting applications in areas such as video game design and robotics. The Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) framework and the SAMR Model will be briefly discussed in reference to how they support this challenge of integrating technology and CS effectively into math instruction.

In this workshop, teachers will learn how the iPad is the perfect classroom tool to use throughout the PBL unit. We will explore apps and resources that can be used throughout every step of the lesson whether you are engaging students in the initial hook, developing the driving question, working on the research, or completing the final products. Teachers will leave with a better understanding of the PBL process and will identify new ways to use iPads to engage students throughout the unit of study.

Kurt Weiler

English Teacher/ESL Coordinator, New Trier High School
My main interest is in critical thinking and how that impacts the high school English classroom. In order to help students learn critical thinking skills, I focus my instruction on asking students to think explicity and metacognitively about the way they approach each reading and writing task. I use journals to require students to make their thinking about a text explicit. I teach writing with a focus on process and helping students develop... Read More →

Go Team! Win Big with Technology and Team-Based Learning
Team-Based Learning (TBL) is an instructional strategy that arranges the classroom into smaller teams, and approaches instruction from a collaborative standpoint, where both individual and team achievement is expected, assessed, and rewarded. Students are held responsible for their individual work, but they also interact together as a team and are held responsible for the choices of the team as a whole. This fosters interpersonal skills and a sense of engagement and community that is often lacking in traditional group activities. Through an interactive demonstration, presenters will give an overview of both the theory and process of TBL in the classroom. We will share our experiences incorporating TBL in our math and science classrooms, and how we combined it with specific iPad apps to improve student participation, critical thinking, and academic success. Our focus will be on assessments and activities using TBL. We will demonstrate apps that promote team-based activities in the classroom, such as interactive digital whiteboards and online concept maps. We will also demonstrate websites and apps that are useful for assessing learning through individual and group quizzes, using digital “clickers” and other feedback tools. Some of the challenges of TBL stem from difficulties in assessing and weighting individual versus team assessment scores, as well as team creation and management issues. We will give our strategies for dealing with these challenges as well as open conversation for other ideas as we promote team effort during the session.
