Training

Interested in having BridgingApps provide training or speak to your group?

Make the most of your in-service training to leverage the power of mobile devices (including iPads and Android tablets) for students of all abilities. Whether you are a general education or special education teacher or paraprofessional, differentiating curriculum for students can be challenging. BridgingApps can assist you in selecting and using appropriate apps for your students whether you are a one-to-one district or a one-iPad classroom teacher.

Lunch & Learn Series

Our Lunch & Learn series is a FREE interactive 30 minute meeting that takes place via Microsoft Teams meetings two days per month. During this relaxed, 30 minute chat we cover a variety of apps and built-in phone features that you can start using right away. Topics covered are based on questions that we are often asked regarding settings for phones and tablets, as well as apps related to current awareness days, upcoming holidays or celebrations, yearly occurrences such as summer vacation or spring break, and from our participants’ requests. Visit our Lunch & Learn Series page to see past topics, upcoming topics, and learn how to join.

BridgingApps Toolbox

This training includes 1 hour of in-depth demonstration of the BridgingApps Website and App Search Tool. Participants will come away with understanding how to leverage the power of the BridgingApps Search Tool, how to search app lists, create and share app lists. Includes 2 hour of apps demonstration combined with accessibility features, useful accessories and ideas to assist learners of all abilities. Tips and tricks for linking apps to IEPs, TEKS and Common Core Curriculum will be addressed.
