Do you seek to deepen your application of iPads and integrated technology? Perhaps this is your first year teaching with iPads? Or is it time to take some great energy and broaden your school's commitment to integration of technology?
iTeach is the place for your educational technology professional development this summer!
San Domenico School, a leader in one-to-one integrated iPad learning, is hosting our fourth 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!
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 2015 is designed for professional, adult learners and is informed by research and learning theory. Dedicated time and drop-in space is available throughout the conference for reflection, mentoring, and even general technical support from teachers and students.

Ourinnovative faculty demonstrates the full potential technology integration. We piloted widespread use of iPads as digital tools to support student learning shortly after the release of the first iPad in 2010. Through comprehensive professional development, rigorous curriculum development, and lived classroom experience, San Domenico teachers are leaders in integrating technology in schools. With a one-to-one student iPad program in grades 3-12, iPad carts and learning stations in early grades, and laptops carts and desktops across campus, our faculty is uniquely qualified to speak to the opportunities and challenges of one-to-one technology in the hands of learners.
iTeach 2015 is designed by a faculty committee dedicated to strong teaching with integrated technology. Christopher K. Sokolov, Director of Technology & 21st Century Learning at San Francisco Day School, is serving as director of this fourth annual iTeach.
