Bring IT Together Conference

This week, I had the opportunity to present an “innovation station” at the Bring IT Together Educational Technology Conference held in Niagara Falls.  The conference, geared towards educators ,administrators and IT professional across Ontario, focuses on best practices in the adoption and integration of technology as well as provides a forum for sharing ideas and discussing best practices in the classroom.  At my station titled “Digital Storytelling in the Second/Foreign Language Classroom”, I shared Netivot’s experience with digital storytelling with the iPad as a component of Hebrew language learning - including the challenges and benefits.  I showed several samples of student work completed on the iPad in various grades and for various purposes.  Apps I demonstrated included: Educreations, Doceri, iMovie, Adobe Voice, Voicethread and Buddy Poke.  A special thank you goes to Morah Ariella Goldstein, Morah Ilana Hollander and Morah Liora Weitzner who provided student work samples.  Educators that stopped by the station were impressed with how Netivot teachers use these applications in their classroom.  Check out student samples in the presentation below:
