Thank you to my incredible colleagues, Dayle Payne, Rhonda Siemons, and Tony Galle for joining me to offer the Imagine, Invent, and Innovate with iPads presentation at Dynamic Landscape 2012.
We shared ways to promote inventive, imaginative, and innovative thinking in Middle School students using tools such as AppCraft (similar to SCRATCH) , 3-D modeling tools (similar to Sketchup), and other apps and practices that promote the creativity cycle, the design cycle, and complex thinking with with i-devices.
Earth is more than attention-grabbing program for finding your way
around our planet. The tools built into this service give you and your
students the opportunity to create original maps filled with your
content. We will use two elementary school projects to demonstrate how
Google Earth can be used to dramatically display original student work
on aerial views of the Earth.
