Amazing and creative way to bring digital tools into the classroom. Students are allowed to grab their digital camera at anytime to record what they are doing in class. This not only supports review, but it allows the kids to express themselves which is very important.

How Does iPad Workflow Fluency Look Like in Kindergarten

How Does iPad Workflow Fluency Look Like in Kindergarten | Education | Scoop.it

"Recently, I tried to explain to a teacher from another school how we are trying to use iPads BEYOND apps. We have over 100 apps on our school iPads and introduce our students according to age level to a variety of them, but the focus of the use of the devices NEEDS to remain primarily as a tool for:

exposing students to skills, characteristic of a “modern learner“critical thinkingpersonal learningtransformative learningworkflow fluencyanytime/anywhere/anyhowcreating"

iPads in Kindergarten: Retelling on the iPad

iPads in Kindergarten: Retelling on the iPad | Education | Scoop.it

Big Question:  How do you listen to each student retell the story?

Answer: Have them record their retelling on Educreations and save their retelling and then you listen to all their responses at home on your couch! (I didn't have to try to juggle getting to each kid which would take forever.)  I actually listened to about 15 of them in 25 minutes during my prep. There were a couple of students who I identified right away as not recording because they had 3 or 4 seconds recording. I grabbed them during another activity to reinforce how this should look."

This might be a good idea to try in combination with Toontastic.  Perhaps one station could be the retelling using the ipad and perhaps other centres could related to the story could aslo be set up at the same time.. Trying to thinks of ideas of how to use 1 ipad.

I especially like the idea of modeling by explaining what thought processes one is going through when demonstrating or learning a task. It could be helpful to apply this when demonstrating how to do research or how to search a database.

Ten Reflections on the First Year of an iPad Pilot

Ten Reflections on the First Year of an iPad Pilot | Education | Scoop.it

Passing out iPads to students on the first day of school was like celebrating Christmas (or in this case Hanukkah)  with thirty antsy kids sitting around the tree,  attempting to hide their impatience.  Once the iPads had been handed out, students were instantly excited, engaged and enchanted with the new learning device in their hands. At first, everyone was confused about where to find work, where to save and store their products – and which app to use for what purpose. As with every pilot, these issues worked themselves out and soon classes were running pretty smoothly. Once they all learned what a “hard reset” was we were on our way. After an exciting year chalked full of learning lessons and changes in our learning landscape here are my takeaways:'
