iPads in the Classroom

 This summer, West Des Moines Community Schools will continue to offer professional development related to the usage of iPads in the classroom.  These specific classes do not include the distribution of additional iPads – only the training.

 This class is for those teachers who already have an iPad to use in the classroom (either a school purchased or even a personal iPad), but haven’t been through any type of formal training.  It’s a great way to earn credit and learn more about your iPad and its uses in the classroom.
