Eureka! » iPad Summer Camp – Project 1 – Digital Story Telling | Fire Starters : Writing Starters for High Schoolers | Scoop.it

"The summer is here and it’s the perfect time to relax, rest, read, and learn about iPads! This is a great time to explore projects and apps that we might use next year in the classroom. On this blog I am going to host 6 seasons on projects that might be useful in the elementary or middle school classroom, across all subject areas. It’s iPad Summer Camp! This is project number 1 - creating a digital story."
