Problem-Based Learning:

Challenging teachers and students to solve real-world problems by using technology as a tool to help collect and analyze data, research, and share information is one way we are trying to transform learning.

Digital Jam Session:

Working with Kevin Honeycutt to bring some fun and excitement to the MSU-B Summer Institute. IPads and GarageBand are a great match!

IPad Implementation Project:

We facilitated an iPad rollout at a local school district in a fourth grade classroom. See some of images and videos from this project

IPads in the Classroom:

Mobile devices provide students opportunities to use apps that allow them learn in real-time and in a format they are comfortable with.

Mobile Devices:

Encouraging educators to use mobile devices with their students to help transform how they teach and where they teach.
