Get down to business with this course on using iPads to teach English language arts and social studies in grades K-12. You'll find concrete ideas and strategies, and specific apps you can use with your students to build knowledge and 21st century skills in these content areas.

Learn from experienced teachers how to personalize and redefine the writing process, enable more engaged, vibrant literature circles (that work together online and in person) with social media like Edmodo, and support literacy growth through supported self-assessment in reading using iTunesU and Evernote.

You'll also encounter teacher recommendations with application ideas for 25 social studies apps.

You can choose an AOK option that leaves you with concrete classroom-enhancing curriculum, and use the micro-badge you earn to show your mastery of iPads for humanities instruction.
