Conference Friday February 28th 2014
Is it possible that the use of mobile digital technologies in the early years, schools, further or higher education contexts may have the potential to transform learning and our education establishments dramatically, supporting the creation of truly personalised learning experiences, related to each individuals needs and learning styles?
The iThink Therefore iPad? conference will present, explore and discuss the existing and potential applications of Apple’s iPad and iPod Touch within an educational context, particularly focusing on the widespread use of these devices across EYFS, primary, secondary, further and higher educational institutions. It will also focus on the viability and affordances of these devices in the current economic climate and the possibilities that they present for developing high quality, cost effective, teaching and learning.
As an ever increasing number of educational establishments embrace the benefits that iPads and iPod Touches can bring to learning, iThink Therefore iPad? will appeal, and be of value, to a wide range of educationalists and professionals related to education settings.
iThink Therefore iPad? originated from and is organised by the Faculty of Education at Manchester Metropolitan University. The Faculty is committed to offering high quality conference and staff development opportunities to support schools in getting the most out of their use of technologies to improve teaching and learning. 2013 will build on the resounding successes of last year’s, first, iThink Therefore iPad? conference and will include an even more exciting array of speakers, activities and workshops from leading professionals in this area, providing the conditions to stimulate a wider and deeper understanding of this field.
