If you’re getting ready to send students home for the summer you may want to share a list of mobile apps that can help families combat the summer slide. Here are a handful of my favorite apps for readers of all ages:
ipadTo get a sense of the iPad’s potential to change teaching and learning in the St. Paul School District, just walk the halls of Mississippi Creative Arts School on the city’s North End.
Outside a classroom recently, four fifth-graders sat on a hallway floor using an iPad to record themselves in a book club conversation that they and their teacher could review later to gauge their understanding of the material.
The teacher, Susan Kreidler, a 21-year veteran, “wasn’t so sure” of her district’s all-in embrace of the device as a means to enhance learning. But kids are inspired, reading levels are up and, Kreidler said, “I’m on board.”
The renaissance of self-reliance has brought about such things as a flood of creative ideas on Pinterest, Arduino projects, popular YouTube DIY Channels, and the Raspberry Pi movement. But why should grown-ups have all the fun? Kids are born into technology, so why not include them in the experience? Teach them to fix and create things and you teach them to take control of their world.
