DEN Event at the Apple Store

On Saturday, March 29 nearly 20 educators from the Madison, WI area had a chance to participate in a Discovery Event at the Apple Store!
The event started at 8:00 a.m. with a light breakfast and great conversation.  Next, participants had an opportunity to learn about some of the 200+ new features that Mac OS X Mavericks has to offer.  Some of the most popular features that might be really useful in our educational environments were covered.  We quickly learned why these features make Mavericks the most advanced operating system yet.
Next, some great iOS 7 tips for the iPhone and iPad were shared.  With new tagging features, maps, texting, iCloud enhancements and more, the demonstrations were very informative and helpful.
What Discovery event could be complete without showcasing the Discovery Tech book app., which is free to all Discovery Star Educators.  With the rich Discovery content and the mobility of devices, learning can occur anywhere and at anytime.

By 10:00 a.m. the store was getting really busy and we were beginning to wrap things up.  Time for a few quick photos in front of the genius bar.
