ETUG Spring Workshop 2014 - Move Over “Sage on the Stage”

When I first brought Apple TV into my classroom, my goal was simply to improve the projected image quality from my iPad. I had no inkling that I had just introduced a tool that had the potential to change the fundamental teaching dynamics in my classroom. During this session I will reenact with workshop participants that moment when my students — using their iPads to complete an in-class comic book assignment — realized they could “occupy the podium,” teach each other, and project their own work from the comfort of their seats. What followed for me — the surprised instructor — as I witnessed students’ improvising with their iPads and exercising their new-found power to teach each other, was equal parts awe, hilarity, and even a moment of panic when I realized I was not “in control” of the lesson and “my class” seemed like it was edging toward anarchy. My inspired students created with each other — at lightening speed — a democratized classroom where everyone was at once the teacher and student. They raced to show their work on screen and get feedback from each other. During that class I saw the “Sage on the Stage” booted out the door and something new and wonderful welcomed in. In this workshop I will show participants how to set up and run Apple TV with iPads; assign a simple, fun assignment using a comic book app; and have everyone “occupy the podium” for show-and-tell. We will finish the session by brainstorming how we instructors can best take advantage of this brave new (Apple TV enhanced) teaching world.
