My students are middle school math students. Middle school is an age where your presentation of new math concepts can grab their attention. There is a difference between reaching an audience or simply providing entertainment.
Technology in the classroom, done the right way, can create more interest in a subject area.
In an age where one-to one device technology is promoted, ONE device in the classroom is enough. It is engaging enough to reach the audience and all students feel the interaction.
Our classroom has recently had the opportunity to use an iPad Pro from an inclusion teacher. We were all amazed when the iPad was used for display purposes on a projector screen. We also had the opportunity to utilize the iPad in a math station setting.
An iPad Pro is a perfect example of how technology in a classroom does not need to be 1-1 in order be effective.
The iPad was large enough to be seen by more than one student, yet small enough to pass around for individual questions to be answered. As the classroom teacher, the connection with existing technology in the classroom was effortless and incurred no additional expense to the school.
