June 19: Each team receives an iPad Mini and will borrow a Garmin eTrext Venture HC GPS. Learn the basic functions of each device. Armed with these technology tools, you will race around the island on golf carts and complete a series of technology challenges; take pictures, create videos, upload information to google docs, create a slide presentations, and much, more. All teams will earn points towards a second iPad Mini depending on how they place.
June 20: Share your findings from the previous day and spend time collaborating and creating lessons. Present your lesson in front of a panel of experts (middle school students). The experts will score your lesson and you will earn points towards a second iPad Mini. Combined highest scores from both days will win that team a second iPad Mini. All teams receive prizes.
At the end of the workshop you will be able to walk into school the first day equipped with resources you can use immediately and hopefully bragging rights as the amazing technology race winner. An excellent workshop for teachers in grades 3 and above!
