Math is Harder When Using an iPad ~ Mrs. Wideen's Blog

Math is Harder When Using an iPad ~ Mrs. Wideen's Blog | 21st Century Concepts-Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it
"I do not use a lot of worksheets in my math program. So much so, that last week, I gave a worksheet during math to my grade 2 students to do and one of my students cheered. CHEERED! For a worksheet! I asked the child in my class why she cheered. I figured that she would have responded with, "I like worksheets." If she had answered that way, I would have been fine with that. I believe that we all have our own learning preferences and some children enjoy doing worksheets. However I would never have anticipated what she said to me. She responded with, "I like doing worksheets better than using the iPads because I don't have to think as much.""
