From the mouths of babes[final [reba matthews][3]

Are you harnessing the power of peer instruction in your classroom? It’s common knowledge that kids often learn lots of things from other kids, so why not ensure that they are learning academic topics from each other?

In this webinar, join Reba Gordon Matthews as she explores how teachers can use iPads to help their students support the academic achievement of their peers. She will show how students can create video tutorials and educational aids by using free productivity, screen casting, video, and camera apps. These tutorials and educational aids can then be embedded in blogs, wikis, and class websites, or they can be uploaded to the cloud for easy student access and viewing.
