What’s Next for the iWizards?

iWizards at iCreate Planning Meeting

Hot off of our successful iPad iCreate Workshop for seventh and eighth graders, the iWizards are now turning their attention to several other activities over the next couple of months.

Jan-Feb  iWizards Tips & Tricks iTunes U and Schoology Courses

The iWizards are currently working on a project of collecting iPad “tips & tricks” about to share with the Mercy community through a Schoology course. We have tentatively decided it will have the following features

*lessons that last 1-2 minutes

*GIF badges as “rewards”

*Possibly some kind of raffle for those who “complete” the course.

Gabriella Meyers, our Apple DE recently visited and suggested we create an iTunes U course with iWizard tips and tricks.  I think this is a great idea and would complement the Schoology course.

Feb. 15  Winter Open House Demonstration

For the past three years the iWizards have provided iPad demonstrations for prospective students.
