If you are using Haiku Deck in teaching, here is a nice update. You can create a group account for the whole classroom or let your students have individual accounts. Read pros and cons of each type of account and decide which one will work best for you.

Who wouldn't want their child in this classroom? Great job, Kathy, and it was your first year 1:1! 

Thina's curator insight, October 1, 2013 1:29 PM

The follwing article speaks of the wonders of Ipads in learning and the advantages that have come with the use of the technology. Students are able to study independently and strive to succeed at their own expense.

 

The leaners are able to share knowledge as well as learn about things that are not part of the curriculum which is a great way of advancing education and shows that learners are learning more than what is expected of them.

 

The use of technology in the classroom is a great tool as the worl is moving up with technology and the media world is advancing showing schools that there's more to education than just text books and written work. This way children don't have to fight for computers in that they all have access to the device and are able to share facts and disocover new things while learning the required curriculum.

 

It is a great article on how school systems should advance with technolgy creating a better learning environment.
