Cathedral Catholic High School’s “iPads in the Classroom” conference was held Feb. 21 and Feb. 22 at the CCHS Library. About 50 educators from as far away as Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and Texas attended the event.

At the conference, “Apple Distinguished Educators” (ADEs) showed educators what tools are available for use in their classrooms, and how to effectively work with the iPad in a school setting.

Three tracks were provided during the conference. One track is for administrators with a focus on long-range planning and financing, teacher training and discipline issues. The track for teachers offers options on classroom management, going paperless, available apps and specific classes for topic areas, such as iPads in a math class. The final track is for those interested in the technical aspects – wireless network, support infrastructure, content filtering.

All the classroom sessions at the conference are taught by Cathedral Catholic teachers. At least part of the day is spent observing classrooms. The event also featured a student roundtable where attendees had the opportunity to ask students questions and get their point of view.
