Content Knowledge:

Remember when planning lessons using technology, that the content of the lesson is still the most important. Choose the standard(s) your lesson will meet.  Remember that in addition to content standards there are also the 21st Century Skills Standards to be met by lessons.

In addition the standard, choose your specific goals and objectives you want your students to meet.

Pedagogical Knowledge:

Now it is time to focus on how the learning will happen.  How will the students learn the content and how will they demonstrate their learning?


What app or feature of the iPad will you and your students use during the lesson? Will it be used to learn the content, share their new content knowledge or both?
