Is it time for some professional development to broaden your commitment to the integration of technology in your teaching? Do you seek to deepen your application of the iPad and its use in the classroom? Trying to figure out what #EdTech is all about?
iTeach is the place for you this summer!
San Domenico School, a leader in one-to-one integrated iPad learning, is hosting our fifth annual premier professional development event for teachers, education technologists, and school administrators. This program is designed by educators for educators at all levels: those taking first steps in implementing one-to-one iPad programs in their schools and for those schools working to take their programs to the next level!
Additionally, participants can sign up to earn one CEU through Dominican University for a fee of $55 paid to the university. Click here to download the form to bring with you to iTeach 2016 along with payment. We will submit on your behalf.
iTeach is purposefully designed to offer meaningful professional adult learning that is crafted to grow good practice. iTeach features hands-on workshops, keynote presentations, and breakout sessions with leaders in education from San Domenico and other leading iPad schools. Deep learning comes best from modeling good practice and then having dedicated time to reflect and implement new practices. iTeach 2016 is designed for professional, adult learners and is informed by the latest research and learning theory. Dedicated time and drop-in space is available throughout the conference for reflection, mentoring, and even general technical support.
Did you know? Participants have access to our amazing hiking trail, swimming pool, tennis courts, and garden -- not to mention our fabulous dining!
