Innovative Storytelling: Enhancing Literacy with Keynote and iPad Creativity Tools by

Jose O’Donovan

Discover how to bring storytelling to life using Keynote, iPad stickers, and photos! Learn to engage children in creating stories and writing with fun, interactive digital tools.

Digi-quiry by

Rachel Smith

This session will explore how digital activities facilitate an enquiry curriculum in the primary setting. I will focus on using the iPad and the Apple suite of apps to promote ​metacognition, pupil independence and creativity using a range of lesson activity ideas and templates to share.

Podcasting: Leveraging Student Voice & Choice by

Tim Bray

Podcasting and vlogging continue to be powerful ways to provide students with opportunities to engage their voice and creativity. This session will provide educators with ideas ​of for using podcasting in their lessons from how to organize a project to what tools to use to produce the episodes. The specific tools supported will be GarageBand and iMovie.

Thinking Outside the Box: Getting Creative with Greenscreen by

Emily Jones

In this workshop, participants will be invited to think outside the box when using chroma key in lessons. We will go beyond simple background substitution and get creative by ​combining tools within apps such as Keynote and iMovie. Practical examples of innovative greenscreen use across an elementary school curriculum will be explored and then we ​will get creative with a hands-on workshop. Participants will be guided through the process of creating a ‘Magic Box’ project (based on the poem by Kit Wright) by using the ​chroma key function within iMovie. The final outcome will be a video of a magic box which has different compartments. When each compartment is opened, a different video, ​with corresponding sound effects, will play. Participants will need to bring iPads to the session with the latest versions of iMovie and Keynote installed.

Impact of Technology in Early Years by

Preeti Williams

Having transitioned from being an Early Years teacher to a Computing Lead, I've seen firsthand the remarkable impact of integrating technology into early learning.

In this session, I'm excited to showcase examples of simplified 'Everyone Can Create' projects that can enhance the learning experiences for young learners. Technology can ​significantly impact various areas of learning such as oracy, and tools like Keynote are especially versatile, opening up new realms of educational possibilities and creativity.

Creativity and sketch project in elementary school by

Rahmat Prayuda Dani

This session will talk about how I explore procreate apps in my art class with students to create a product such as costume design, poster, stage design, fabric motif, and an ​animation. I will share how this technology help me to build my ideas in teaching and learning to create a fun and creative product for students and school.

Collaborative Learning with AI: Harnessing Collective Intelligence by

Aris Suryamas

This session explores AI's transformative role in education through two case studies. First, discover how students use Notion to create a shared knowledge database, enabling AI ​to assist in recalling material and enhancing collaborative learning. Second, learn about NoteToday, a student-developed language learning iPad app that leverages collective ​intelligence and AI to personalize learning experiences. Understand how AI fosters creativity, personalized learning, and effective knowledge management, while upholding ​ethical standards and promoting an inclusive learning environment.

Generative AI for Augmented Reality on iPads for Teaching and Learning by

Dr. Helmi Norman

This workshop exposes participants to generative artificial intelligence (gen AI) tools that can be used to create digital assets that can be used for augmented reality (AR). Tools ​such as AI-based 3D model creation and AI-based skybox (sphere images for AR and VR) will be shared, as to provide ideas and inspiration in integration of AR for teaching and ​learning. Participants will also experience how to integrate these AI-based assets in Reality Composer for development of immersive AR environments.

Adventures with AI in the History Classroom by

Travis Copus

History is often the last classroom that is transformed by technology. Rather than the boring old lecture, what if we used generative AI to create art? Suddenly every student in ​the class can produce a high quality political cartoon or a propaganda poster. Could we spend less time developing the content in lectures and more time making it interactive? ​Of course, if we outsource the slide creation to genAI. This workshop will highlight some of the ideas I've found useful and help teachers stay away from some of the mistakes I've ​made.
