iPad App Challenges

Through Tony Vincent's blog, I learned about Craig Badura's iPad Task Challenges. I liked the idea so much that I thought I'd create my own on the Pic Collage app. 

It can be very challenging to train or coach teachers that are in very, very different places with their technology comfort and experience. I used two of Craig's challenges (Camera app and Skitch app) and mine (Pic Collage app) with a diverse group of middle school teachers. It really worked well and in just an hour every teacher had created a classroom sample with an app that interested them! 

Thanks for the inspiration, Mr. Badura.
