The general course ‘Tap-Swipe-Pinch. Tablets changing the way to learn and teach’ offers you best practice approaches and practical examples for using iPads and tablets in lessons and education.
- Teachers / management of primary and secondary schools.
- Remark: iPad, Android or Windows tablets are welcome at the course. Participants get updated lists of apps with practical examples of use to take back to their classes. However, we have to remind you that there is a rich collection of free apps useful for education on the market for iPad and Android and not so many for Win tablets, so consequently Win tablet users profit less from the course.
The courses are focusing on pedagogical use of tablets in schools. Each participant needs to bring his own tablet and we expect that each participant has basic knowledge of using his tablet before the course. We don’t provide computers nor tablets.
