RMS Presents at iPad Summit in Boston

Teachers from the Richmond Middle School presented at the iPad Summit in Boston this past Thursday on using iTunes U as a classroom management tool.  This year's  iPad Summit attracted over 700 teachers and provided an opportunity to share teaching practices and knowledge about integrating technology into the classroom.  It was an honor for our teachers to share how they use iTunes U in their specific classes to educators from all over the country at a national level technology conference.

Conference organizer Kate Wilson commented,  "I really enjoyed your session. You were all so succinct in sharing your experiences from multiple disciplines. Your group’s specific examples coupled with real teachers were much more powerful in 10 minutes than many 1 hour long talks I have seen."

A few of the workshops RMS teachers attended include:  'App Smashing', '1:1 Administrative Tips', 'What Great Teachers do with iPads', 'Project Based Learning with iPads'.  Below is a link of the conference workshops including ours!
