iPad Summit Welcome – Thomas Daccord

Thomas Daccord, the Director of EdTechTeacher, welcomes us all again to the iPad Summit in San Diego – a gathering of 600 educators focused on innovative education. Tom begins his welcome by highlighting the fact that this isn’t really a single device focused conference. Rather, it’s about fostering an environment of student learning and creativity. It’s about viewing the iPad as an avenue of learning (not a consumption device). It’s about the iPad as a mobile, creation device rather than a tool to simply read content or watch video. It’s time to put the iPad in the classroom, rather than on the classroom.
