ATLANTA -- It doesn't make sense for students to have tablets and other technology if teachers aren't creating learning opportunities on them.
That's why hundreds of Georgia teachers recently attended iSummit, a conference focused on Apple technology.
"We have information ranging from what are some of the best apps that are out there now, and how can I use them. We have people talking about big ideas," iSummit director Margaret Gunter said.
Instead of being taught by Apple professionals, iSummit is led by teachers, including some 11Alive Class Act teachers.
"We bring in Apple distinguished educators, who are teachers who have been identified as having this extra skill set to be able to share knowledge," Gunter said.
Best of all, iSummit is a place where teachers can network and share ideas. They meet at the conference and communicate throughout the year.
