This session will explore how students can use digital tools on the iPads and laptops to create dynamic digital media to communicate what they have learned! Tools will include but not be limited to iMovie Trailers and movies, Google Slides, and VoiceThread. Come explore the ins and outs of each tool and see student examples of what can be done. An iPad is helpful but not necessary for this session.


  1. Participants will examine the features of a collaboration tool (online and app).
  2. Participants will create a sample using the tool of their choice.
  3. Participants will explore and discuss classroom applications for each tool.
