There’s more to this photo than you think! This afternoon Cooperating School Districts’ Martha Bogart connected to teachers in Marshfield, Missouri. Topic of discussion: iPads in the classroom. Martha is providing this professional development interactively over WebEx. She’s sharing images of her iPad via her desktop and discussing various apps with the group. Participants are asking questions and she’s responding in real time, and showing them various techniques, and talking through demonstrations. What were some of your favorite iPad apps?
