All About Android on June 22

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.

Each session: $75 CSD member; $89 non-member

we’ve set up 15 new iMacs with the Leopard OS in the tele (with the help of Apple). What’s really cool about the new Apples is that they have both Windows and Mac programs with Boot Camp. We’re really excited to be able to train our teachers on the computers they are familiar with- whether it is a PC or Mac.
January 15 note- 
id370_features_hero1.jpg We have made even more changes- our new SMART Boards have been installed at CSD, including one in the tele.  In addition to the SMART Board, we have our Promethean Activboard and new Sympodiums.  If you haven’t been to CSD’s tele for professional development training, St. Louis area teachers, now is the time!
