Upcoming PD Opportunity: World Language - Apple Curriculum Series

I received the following email from the fine folks at Apple this morning to share an upcoming PD opportunity for teachers of the World Languages. I wanted to pass it along and hope that some folks would be interested in attending!

With Apple tools possibilities exist to make language learning a new experience. At this hands-on event, you’ll see how educators can use iPad, Mac, apps, iBooks Author, and iTunes U to create and deliver engaging content. You’ll also learn how creating and exploring digital content can personalize learning and help students of all learning styles grasp challenging concepts. Participants will have the chance to see how:
  • ...using built in Apple language capabilities can help everyone fully engage with World Language content.
  • ...using multimedia capabilities and tools in both iOS & OS X can increase student engagement with World Language content.
  • ...iBooks can be used in multiple ways in the classroom.
  • ...specific World Language apps can transform language attainment.
  • ...iTunes U places a host of curated content in teacher and student hands immediately - ready to be used in the way that makes sense to them.
  • ...learning from Apple Distinguished Educators about what works, and beginning to adapt these practices to their own classroom will help teachers move forward immediately without having to “figure it all out themselves.”
Focus area will be the K-12 World Language classroom
