In April 2015 – a group of teacher educators convened in Cupertino for a three-day summit with two particular goals – share how iPads were being used in teacher education programs, and create shared materials in the form of multi-touch books and iTunesU courses that could be easily incorporated into other teacher education programs. Each of the attendees had a specific content area expertise and the activities and workshops were designed to inspire creativity and collaborative sharing while leveraging the power of mobile technologies.  Teacher educators were present from a variety of public and private colleges and universities from all over the world, and represented a variety disciplines.

This panel presentation will feature teacher educators who created projects as part of the summit.  We will discuss how we are using iPads and content creation at our sites and share the artifacts of our work as part of the summit and beyond. We will discuss how we created the materials to both share the content with attendees and inspire and encourage attendees to create similar shareable content.   We plan to talk about the kind of culture and leadership challenges that have come into play with using these materials in our teaching and provide attendees with guidance for navigating toward creating similar products at their own institutions. 

The course materials that were created and will be represented by panelists include:

  • Preparing for Your First Teaching Job
  • Reading instruction for students with disabilities
  • Content Area eReading
  • Reading Elementary K-6 (8 week)
  • Links to other course materials created by those not represented 
All of our content is available via iTunes U
