Welcome to our class! We hope that you find the pages and information useful! We are playing around with technology and learning as we go along.
We are getting really excited about the iPads that are coming to our classroom this week. I have been bringing my own personal one to school and having the children use it for a variety of projects. The children really love it and have NO FEAR! They just jump in! I have had them experiment with StoryBuddy and Sight Word Bingo. Both are big hits.
StoryBuddy lets them draw a picture and write a simple sentence to go with their illustration. I then take a picture with the iPad and add it to the next page. I love the vivid colours and the details that the children have added. They seem very willing to take the time to do a Big Bright and Beautiful picture (the Three B’s of picture making) using the iPad.
Sight Word Bingo is an app I loaded that allows the student to practise the list that they are working on with a variety of games. Two children play together. They are doing a really good job taking turns!!
Even one iPad really helps so I am really pumped to see what 15 iPads will produce!
One response to “Hello world!”
I am grateful for the time & efforts the staff at Moutain View have put into increasing the technology in our school!
The use of Ipads is exciting, practical, and educational.
The access to our newsletters, websites, emails, and this blog enables me to stay informed, and feel a part of the ‘goings on’.
I now feel we are keeping up when I go to other schools and see what they are doing.
