Thursday 8 December 3.45 - 4.45pm Brianna Winsor - My iJourney; Creating valuable learning experiences through integrating iPads into the learning workflow

Webinar description: Do your students currently have iPads (or tablets) for learning? Is your school considering it? Does it all feel a bit owerwhelming? It did for me too! But don't worry. I would like to share my story of how in under 1 year I managed to transform the way my students and I use iPads in the Japanese classroom to enhance learning. I will discuss how I continue to integrate the use of iPads into my lesson workslow and the effects it has had on my pedagogy and my students' learning including improved student engagement and outcomes, extending learning beyond the classroom, freeing up more time for interacting and supporting students in class, and even reducing my own workload and stress! Students at Brisbane SHS participate in a BYOD iPad program. For almost two years, I simply used the iPads as a "tack on" to my regular program, which included the standard things like paper notebooks, textbooks, worksheets, MP3s etc. The iPad was basically a tool for playing script game apps, vocab quizzes, internet research and word processing. I basically used it as a "reward" after the "real classwork" had been completed. It was not until the start of this year that I started to realise the endless potential these devices offer and started utilising them as an integral part of the learning process. Come along as I share my transformational practice that includes activities for: 
- sharing resources and defferentiating learning;
- regular formative assessment and data collection; 
- giving students timely, detailed and meaningful feedback; 
- facilitating collaborative group work and online peer feedback; 
- creating online learning communities; 
- flipping the classroom; improving pronunciation; 
- practising speaking, listening and digital note-taking; 
- building meaningful relationships with students; 
- practising language and creating digital content in an authentic context. 

About Brianna: Brianna currently teaches grades 7 - 12 at Brisbane State High School, QLD. This year, Brianna is participating in "Towards Transformation", a professional learning program in which educators strive to achieve best practice by trialing, testing and reflecting on vaiours digital innovations to enhance and evolve the way students learn.
