Innovate with iPad

Karen Lirenman

Karen is a lifelong learner, author, and educator. She is transforming education by connecting her students with the world using Twitter, blogs, and video conferencing. Karen has a student choice-driven hands-on approach to teaching which includes inquiry, project based, and maker mindset. At present Karen teaches a combined grade one, two, and three class at the Surrey Academy of Innovative Learning, but really she just teaches and learns with children.  Her classroom runs very little like a traditional classroom.  Karen is an Apple Distinguished Educator, Google Innovator, ISTE Award recipient, and 5x Ironman finisher.  In 2016 Karen published Innovate with iPad: Lessons to Transform Learning as a way to help educators see how technology can help students create their own content instead of consuming someone else’s.
