6 Ready To Go iPad Centers ~ Mrs. Wideen's Blog

6 Ready To Go iPad Centers ~ Mrs. Wideen's Blog | Education | Scoop.it

"A few of the following iPad Centers/Stations I have posted before, however I thought it might be useful to post them again, at the beginning of the year so you know they are here if you want to try something new during your literacy or math block.  All of the centers can be done using one or two iPads at the center and are actual centers that my students used last year.  I hope you find them useful or they spark new ideas to try with your students."

iPad Centres, what a great idea!

rwestby's curator insight, March 31, 2014 11:02 AM

These centers are well-prepared and ready-to-go! They are geared to first/second graders but can be adapted to suit others as well. Thanks to Mrs. Wideen and Mr. Evans for sharing.

While not directly a literacy post, I find this article discusses how to integrate a few iPads into the classroom when one does not have a class set or 1:1.

It's a TV studio in your hands. Create broadcast-quality videos with a built-in teleprompter, green screen, visual filters, sound effects, and titles. Watch TouchCasts from the app or online

Most of these link to advertisements for commercial brands or websites that no longer exist
john dimitriou's curator insight, March 26, 2014 6:58 AM

Asking students to create or identify themselves through an avatar to explain how something works or how it is made allows students to package information in a way that it helps them to unpack knowledge. Becoming personally and emotionally invested helps to engage learners. They take ownership.

Carmen Arias 's curator insight, September 12, 2014 12:05 PM

Students love creating their own avatars. Let´s practise with some of  these tools
