Course Content

In four lessons, we'll show you everything you need to start digital lessons with the iPad:

    The Notes app allows students and teachers to effortlessly capture ideas, sketch concepts and organise resources. With intuitive operation and seamless synchronisation, it offers space for creativity and structure at the same time.

  • Lesson 4 (Lesson planning: Inspiration & Apple Learning Center)
    Motto: “Sharing is caring”. Educators use the technologies on the iPad in a variety of ways. In this lesson, we present many practice-oriented teaching examples that invite you to try them out in the class and motivate you to do something.
