Staff development for mobile learning initiative

Our school is developing staff development for our mobile learning initiative.  Our plan is to require every teacher to go through “bootcamp” when they  first receive their iPads.  Then the department chairs who have been part of our planning team will work with their department to share apps and resources.  We plan to then offer a series of workshops focusing on productivity apps, content-creation apps and interactive experiences.  All of these activities will be to support student learning
