Creating on iPads workshop
This was my fifteenth year of either attending or presenting at my district's tech academy
. This has always been a valuable venue for hands on technology learning and exploration. This is where I first learned to build a website, edit a movie, export a document, and build a slideshow. I owe a big thank you to District 25 for years of training!
Josh Stumpenhorst, 2012 Illinois Teacher of the Year, gave the keynote speech to kick off our tech academy. You can view the tweets from the conference at #techacademy25

Below are some of the projects we explored in my Creating on iPads
Workshop. We used my website
as a guide for resources, but again found that 2 hours wasn't enough time.
We entered the Crown Fountain and gave it a reflecting pool. Click to see this lesson.
We downloaded by collaborative art template and each drew a section of a figure to learn the drawing tools. Find my template on the Creating on iPads page.
We creating dramatic quotes using camwow and pic collage. Click to see the lesson.
We tried a creativity project with clouds.
We drew over the cloud of our choice to show what we see in it. Then shared our drawing with AirServer
