Like never before, schools around the country are looking for solid answers as they transition to digital classrooms.
School leaders and faculty members from schools in the Greater New Milford area will have a chance to learn from the experts at one local school who have been through the switch.
The workshop is geared toward people in the education field, but others are invited to attend.
The school, which has a 92 percent eTextbook adoption rate across all grade levels, launched its iPad program last fall, when every student received an iPad. Since then lessons are taught, homework is handed in and projects are presented digitally.
Instead of a series of over-generalized presentations, iBookcamp participants will get their hands dirty with small group sessions with teachers and administrators with personal experiences.
Topics to be covered include teaching strategies: How to deal with distractions and best utilize digital tools; wireless infrastructure: what is really needed to support dozens or hundreds of devices; getting started: a step-by-step walk-through for schools just getting started; and eTextbooks: navigating the sea of eBook myths and misconceptions.
