* Note “regular” Apple and Windows laptops can be brought to Make Media Camp and used to create projects, but are discouraged unless your students have the same laptop as their school-provided digital platform. By using an iPad or Chromebook for this workshop, with its respective constraints as well as affordances, participants will gain a much deeper understanding of how these devices can be used most effectively with students to create and share to “show what they know” and can do!
