Tips and tricks in iOS 12 and screen sharing to enhance collaboration and engagement in the classroom — Do you have an iPhone or iPad? Do you want to learn more about new features such as screen recording, multitasking, built in scanning and the new file system? Become more organized, save time and increase productivity while untethering yourself from the podium. Using the built in Airplay function, you can share your screen with the class —or ask your students (with Apple devices) to do the same. Learn how easy it is to leverage the Apple TV to provide for greater collaboration and interactivity with your students. Share your Powerpoint or Keynote slides, zoom in on objects that you want to share with the entire class, bring in an expert virtually on the big screen or run your favorite app. Time permitting, we will also review some Augmented Reality apps - rendering objects that are hard to imagine and turning them into 3D models, thus making it easier to grasp abstract and difficult content. The possibilities are endless.
