July 29th and August 4th, the Instructional Technology Department hosted its first ever "Mobile Device Academy." These 59 sessions were designed to introduce teachers to dynamic web applications and mobile apps for integrating technology into their curricular areas. These web and mobile apps can be used in almost any curriculum and in any grade level using either iPads, Chromebooks, laptops, or other BYOD devices.
Most sessions were 50 minutes in length and focused on just one or two apps. Flip through the HaikuDeck below to see the session titles:

The feedback from these sessions were overwhelmingly positively- but, of course, there is always room for improvement. So as we move forward, we will revamp and revise sessions to offer the best technology staff development available that is both engaging and relevant.
If you would like any additional information about any of the sessions in the Haiku Deck above, please see your Campus Technology Liaison (if you are an Arlington ISD teacher). Otherwise, shoot us a message and we'd be glad to share!
