Ideas for Creating Digital Literacy- Amgela Maiers

Even though this is a slideshare and we can not hear the words of the Angela Maiers many of the slides speak for themselves. I had the pleasure of hearing her speak last year at the iPad Summit at Georgia Tech. I can not say that I have met anyone more passionate about life and education as Ms. Maiers. Her mantra is "You Matter." Take a look at the slideshare and visit her website. I promise you will not be disappointed!

It is a tool in the classroom that enhances learning and extends the walls of the classroom. Viewing this SlideShare will have you thinking of the pedagogy of using the iPads in and out of the classrooms.
