Apple devices are amazing to use with students and for your own professional growth. It can be overwhelming to figure out ways to use the devices to their fullest potential. Apple has solved this issue by providing the free Apple Teacher Learning Center. This session will dive into all of the free features of Apple Teacher Learning Center including foundational skills and resources, Apple Teacher Certification, templates, and lesson ideas. We will focus on creating with Apple devices using native Apple apps. This will eliminate the need to explore 3rd-party apps that may not be SOPPA aligned. Leave with new ideas, resources, and ready to dive deeper into Apple!
