Really good
Kathb123's curator insight, April 6, 12:30 AM

Using iPads is highly recommended in the school environment where I am doing my prac. Although I haven't met my students yet, I am starting to consider ideas on what they may find interesting and what they could possibly utilise. On the home front, teaching the "outside" world to my "inside" kid can be beneficial. This way he learns where his food comes from and doesn't have to get his hands dirty!
