Digital Storytelling with Mobile Devices takes place July 10, 11 & 13, each day from 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Do you have an iPad or Android tablet? Are you wondering if creating a digital story is too difficult? Help your students create their own digital stories by experiencing the process yourself. This three-day workshop (where you earn two graduate credits) teaches the pre-production, production and post-production phases of digital storytelling. You will have an opportunity to use either iMovie for the iPad or various Android apps. The workshop is a cross between a writer’s workshop and a movie-making symposium. Bring a story to share, or select from one of the stories provided. Walk away with your own 2-3 minute movie and lots of ideas about how to help students create one. Bring your own mobile device. Cost for all three days: $369 CSD member; $459 non-member.

These days there is a lot of focus on iPads in K-12 education. What about the schools that have embraced a non-Apple tablet? Here’s an opportunity for those educators to learn more about what they can do on their Andriod device! Check out these upcoming workshops (take one, or both!) from Cooperating School Districts:
Android Tablet Boot Camp on June 22, from 8:30-11:30 a.m.
Tablets are revolutionizing the classroom. With information at your student’s fingertips, and apps that can focus on a specific concept and engage our students, no wonder they are a success. Learn techniques to navigate Android devices, customize settings, and install apps. Discover apps that can be used at any grade level and how to find them, while building a toolkit at the same time. Join us if you are an Android amateur or a Google guru; there will be something for everyone. You may bring your Android device, or we will share one with you.
Educational Apps for Android Tablets on June 22, from 12:30-3:30 p.m.
This is a continuation of the Android Tablet Boot Camp workshop. Spend the afternoon learning about some great educational Android apps. Find out which apps can be used for classroom management & assessment, and which apps fit best into the different content areas such as math and language arts. Walk away with a list of apps and and feel confident on how they can be effectively used in schools.
