    At Van Rensselaer Elementary School, creativity on iPad takes many different forms. Students love to create iMovie or Clips projects to showcase their learning. Some prefer a Keynote presentation, and still others choose to write and illustrate a digital book. Students can connect with experts on FaceTime and use apps and AirDrop to collaborate in real time. Outside class, students use iPad to email team members, work on a shared file, or share links, photos, and videos. And when winter weather causes school cancellations, teachers can still teach through preloaded or live lessons on iPad.
