Description

DESCRIPTION

In May, Intel Teach Live welcomes Brian Yearling as he explores the notion of " App Overload." We have all been there. A new device arrives and our immediate tendency is to start downloading apps. App overload is real and it plagues our classrooms and steals precious instructional time. We will explore how we can limit app selection to just a few powerful, creation or collaboration focused apps (or software), and then deepen our thinking around how these apps can be creatively leveraged to do more and to give our students unique ways to demonstrate what they know.
