My "firsties" are anxious and eager to learn! They soak up every little thing and it is amazing to be part of their education. Using technology enhances their learning in so many ways. We use technology as much as possible in our classroom and school. Protecting the technology is just as important as the technology itself. I hope to keep offering opportunities for my students to learn in different ways. Opening their eyes to information and knowledge is extremely powerful.
I have more students this year and therefore need more iPads. We use iPads often throughout the week. They are utilized as a center during math stations as well as language arts instruction. Another great use is for playing review games. This makes the review for assessments fun and interactive. The students love to do this rather than a "typical" question and answer review. Receiving two more iPads (with cases and Applecare) will bring my iPad ratio to 2:1. (I hope to eventually make this 1:1.) Supporting this project will dramatically improve my classroom instruction and I hope you can help me make it happen!
