In honor of National Teacher Appreciation Week (May 7-11, 2012), Wisconsin Lutheran College and The Learning Shop have partnered to provide outstanding educators a chance to win one of six Apple iPads, each with a scholarship to WLC’s “iPad in Education” course.
Last year, Liz Langer, an elementary school teacher in Wisconsin, received an iPad from her school district after she expressed an interest in utilizing iPad technology to further engage her students. She enrolled in Wisconsin Lutheran College’s iPad in Education course, and has continued to research and discover remarkable ways to increase student achievement in her classroom through its use.
Last week, Apple announced a new vision for the future of education. The announcement featured several new educational tools designed to revolutionize classroom learning. In Wisconsin Lutheran College’s “iPad in Education” course, educators have the opportunity to develop 21st century skills, while discovering Apple’s new educational tools, including iBooks 2, iBooks Author, and iTunes U.
“It has been so rewarding to bring this 21st century learning experience into my class and my school.”
