One of the popular Open Space Topics at our Tech Integrator/Media Specialists Mtgs this year has been Apps! Which apps are you using to increase productivity, creativity, and collaboration? Which apps are you using for formative assessment? Many of us are involved in iPAD implementations at various levels, whether the special education department all received iPADS this year or one particular classroom teacher or grade level. Or even, maybe your entire building received iPADS in an 1:1 implementation. Whichever might be your current scenario, we have a great day of collaboration that you don't want to miss. IU13 IMS is announcing our first iPAD Collaboration Day on May 2, 2014 from 9 am - 3 pm at IU13 Conference Training Center. We are partnering with Apple INC. for an inspiring, motivating, and collaborative day sharing best practices and apps when using an iPAD in the classroom. This day will be a mixture of sit and reflect, and bring something to share with everyone in the true spirit of collaboration. Imagine sitting with other teachers who teach the same grade level or subject as you do sharing the apps they like best for their classroom. Imagine getting time to learn from one another sharing what has worked and what has not worked out so well while using iPADs in the classroom. What a great day this will be!

We had a very successful meeting in November where quite a few districts participated in some very thought provoking discussions that concentrated on the status of each district's 1:1 initiatives. We also discussed what everyone wants to continue to focus on throughout this year. Professional development and implementation seem to be two hotspots in which many have an interest. We are going to continue these conversations in our next 1:1 forum coming up on February 28, 2014. The invitation to join this meeting is open to all school districts who have begun 1:1 or is in the planning stages of 1:1. Please consider attending whether you are a Tech Coach/Integrator, Online Coordinator, Tech Coordinator/Director, or any other teacher/administrator who is involved in the planning, preparation, and implementation process. Please bring all your questions, information, and topics you would like to explore. Don't forget to register on mlp.
