Amazing use of iPad apps that have great potential in the classroom. Bev was really patient and demonstrated how to use the apps very clearly. Workshop activities were fun.

I really enjoyed the course but I feel it would be better if it was based on beginners – advanced as a lot of content was above me.That said, I still have some great deal to try.

A very thorough course, lots of good ideas to use in the classroom. Wish there was more time to work through some of the apps.

Bev is energetic and loves this topic. Great resources. Breadth of apps excellent. The ‘how to create’ these would be a nce little addition especially for Nearpod for example.

I found the course moved quite quickly – if I missed the first steps in the explanation I wasn’t sure what to do. Felt some of my questions weren’t answered fully. There was some really interesting content and knowledge of where tech/apps was very evident.

My mind and eyes have been opened. App-smashing is completely new to me and will be very useful.

A lot to take in. A few issues with time lags and internet Wi-Fi taking a lot of time to start or not working. Most worked fine or Bev found an alternative way to show us.

A lot of content which moved us along quickly. Some more time spent on Apps at beginning would be good.


About the team



Beverley Babbage

Creator

I am passionate about teaching and strive to be creative and innovative to keep students engaged and challenged. I am enthusiastic about teaching with technology, not just using it as a substitution, but to use it to make real advances in education. I enjoy helping and inspiring other teachers to embrace technology by showing them what I do in the classroom and collaborating to help them integrate it into their own teaching.
My main passion with technology is with iPads, and as I have managed these myself, I understand the management issues and how solutions need to be found to deal with network restrictions, and sharing and submitting of work. This can be particularly problematic with music and composition.
In addition to specialising in Music, I also present courses on using the iPad in all CAPA subjects (Music, Art and Drama), cross-curricular apps that can be used in all subject areas and also beginner coding and programming for K-6 students with an introduction to robotics. I demonstrate how to integrate these apps and resources into lesson for creative teaching and learning.
