Auburn MS Hosts iPad User Group

Carl Bucciantini from Auburn Middle School reports via the ACTEM ListServ...

On Thursday February 6 from 3:00 – 4:45 PM, please join us at Auburn
Middle School for the initial Auburn Area Middle School iPad Users
Group. This meeting is intended to be an informative, purposeful, and fun
gathering for middle school teachers who are using iPads in their
classrooms.

This will not be formal professional development, but rather a gathering
of practitioners to share ideas and knowledge around how to make the most
of iPad in the middle school setting. It will be a gathering that will be
of value to all levels of iPad users – from the beginner to the advanced.
To make this happen:

• this event will be led by Auburn Middle School teachers who are using
iPads in their classrooms.

• this event will provide time for teacher-to-teacher sharing of ideas
and resources.

Via the Apple Primary MLTI solution and other implementations, iPads are
being used effectively in middle school classrooms across Maine. This
event will be a time for middle school teachers from Auburn and
surrounding communities to share knowledge & experience, successes &
challenges – all with an eye towards making everyone, including your
students, more effective and innovative iPad users.

Topics addressed during this gathering of the Auburn Area Middle School
iPad Users Group (Auburn MSIUG) will include:

  • Managing the iPad classroom
  • Flipping the classroom
  • APPetizers
  • Managing the workflow

Participants are encouraged to bring their questions and stories of
success.

Please be sure to bring along your iPad and Apple ID information so you’ll
be able to download some of the apps you’ll hear about – wireless access
will be available.

Sixty (60) places are available for this Auburn Area Middle School iPad
Users Group, and registration will close when that number is reached.
