If you have recently received an iPad or set of iPads for your classroom and are wondering how to get started, this blog post, "Four Things I can do Tomorrow", will be a great resource to get started! Our favorite is #2: Have your students take photos or short videos of a learning activity and ask them to reflect on their learning. . . a very powerful formative assessment activity!
This great resource is available for download on your iPad with iBooks 2 or on your computer with iTunes. It is written for middle and high-school students but we have found it is a great resource for all!
