iPad Media Camp* is a three day series of hands-on workshops designed to inspire and equip educators to facilitate student media projects using iPads. Participants should BYOI (bring your own iPad) to camp. iPad Media Camp is led and facilitated by Dr. Wesley Fryer, author of the 2013 ebooks, “Mapping Media to the Common Core: Vol 1” and “Hopscotch Challenges: Learn to Code on an iPad!” and the 2011 ebook “Playing with Media: simple ideas for powerful sharing.” 2014 will be the third summer of iPad Media Camps!
The daily agenda for each day of iPad Media Camp is available. Daily topics include:
- Day 1: Narrated Art, Screencasting and Narrated SlideShows
- Day 2: Quick Edit Videography
- Day 3: Interactive Writing and eBooks

Some reactions and quotations from participants in past iPad Media Camps include:
Dr. Fryer made the impossible happen for me. I was able to create movies and books! I’m an old dog and he made it fun and easy to learn new tricks. Great workshop and a great presenter.
If you are interested in coming up with innovative ways to engage your students in class with media they are truly interested in, you need to attend this camp. The things I’ve learned in this camp, and others taught by Wes, have made my class exciting for kids to attend and helped make them responsible media creators.
Go directly to Media Camp. Do not pass GO, do not collect $200! It was so worth my time. Even old dogs can learn new tricks! Thank you for all your hard work.
I hope to see you at an iPad Media Camp this summer!
