Becoming proficient with my iPad and becoming an Apple Teacher
Apple has created a multitudes of great software that allows for better communication, learning, and even teaching. The Apple Teacher program is a journey educators can undergo to become more confident and proficient in their Apple Skills. On the Apple Teacher website, after signing in with an Apple ID, there are a countless amount of FREE resources to learn new skills, test knowledge, and earn badges to show successes. This week I earned my iPad Badge. I find myself a tech savvy individual, but even I learned a few things I didn't originally know about the iPad. By offering these different areas of software to gain more knowledge Apple is allowing educators to have an individual experience. There are different paths individuals may take whether it be iPad or Mac. My favorite thing I learned about the iPad while earning my iPad Badge was learning how to set up a "photo booth" in the classroom for students to record learning reflections as a type of assessment. I cannot wait to dive deeper with my knowledge of Apple, earning badges in other Apple software programs like Keynote, Numbers, and Pages.
