Curriculum.   In fact the general keynote presentation will be titled, “Retrofitting the Classroom for the iPad”.  Cheryl Davis will be coming from the San Francisco Bay area to deliver her presentation and two other workshops  Lucy Gray of Chicago has guided us in developing  the in-service event.  She will also be presenting workshops as will three of our own talented staff members– Anne Eddy, Susan Smith, and Alison Kline-Kator.  Each Mercy staff member will experience three of the following:

Book Creation on the iPad

Collaborative Tools for Notetaking and Mindmapping

Creating Video

Exploring Instructional Uses of YouTube

iPads in the Moodle Environment

iTunes U Content and Courses

The In-Service will be a paperless experience.  Lucy has helped us build a public Google Site in the interest of making our efforts transparent and helpful to the greater educational community.  Feel free to visit it:
