Come and see a strange new world, where children are encouraged to learn to think procedurally and have a platform for expression, a context for mathematics, and a place to just plain have fun, using Scratch, a colourful, introductory programming environment. (If you want to go deeper, come to my session 'Hastening The End Of Civilization As We Know It').

We will be discussing how to use iMovie on an iPad for student presentations. iPads and iMovie are great presentation tools for students at any grade level. They can easily be taken anywhere in and out of the school and the video-editing process is user-friendly and quick. You'll be amazed by the videos your students can create!

Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Embrace Diversity.

Android, iOS, Windows, OS X, Linux, Chrome OS.

Rather than activities and assignments that require all students to have identical devices with specially-chosen apps, let's talk about how we can accomplish learning objectives with whatever devices students have. We'll look at examples of cross-platform tools, and specifically how to approach things in terms of "product" rather than "process".
