Classroom sets of iPads are showing up everywhere, even in schools that never considered 1 to 1 a possibility. But the iPads don't do the teaching, and we need to be clear about the pedagogy we are trying to address when we introduce technology into our curriculum. Teachers at Sidwell Lower School have put pedagogy first as they integrate the advantages of iPads into their curriculum. Lower School teachers from each grade level will speak about their current classroom projects and challenges with iPads as well as the planning process and integration. The Technology Coordinator will describe professional development, digital  citizenship, and guidelines for evaluation and reflection that will assure that the pedagogy and curriculum are driving the iPad program, and not the other way around. Applicable Grades: K-5.

Location Details: Lower School Groome Building. Turn into driveway from Edgemoor Lane. Visitor Parking is on the right.

Presenters: Jenni Voorhees, Sidwell Friends School
