A great second day at American School of The Hague for a workshop, in the main theatre, for the European Laptop Institute Conference - The Hague, Holland.
The European Laptop Institute is an international event for schools using or considering laptops or tablets and other handheld devices as tools for learning. Hosted by the American School in The Hague in The Netherlands, the European Laptop Institute offers breakout sessions – from hands-on events to lectures, discussions and networking.
We delivered a session using various iPad and Web based resources. Thank you, to our two, unsuspecting, characters, who joined us in Epic Citadel.
Some excellent stuff.
Judy Zalesky, from ASH, showed us many uses of iPod Touches, in Kindergarten. She gave lots of useful, practical, tips, on apps, and management of the hardware. Her presentation is HERE.
One superb workshop was run by Ruth Behrsing, also from ASH. She explored some options for student response systems in the classroom, using a set of clickers as well as using laptops and iphones/ipods as response devices. We were the students while Ruth showed different ways that you can use these with various classes.
Ruth mentioned Answer Garden, a kind of Wordle for responses.Well worth investigating. The more frequently an answer is given, the larger it becomes.
Some of the sites, and resources, we mentioned, in our session, are in the following linkbun.ch: http://linkbun.ch/0lkhp (the 0 is a zero)
