We are one of the lucky classes to pilot MBS’s new iPad cart. Our class has access to 10 iPads throughout the day. At MBS, the other 10 iPads are shared with music and both art teachers, as well as Ms. Hebert, Mrs. Rogers, Ms. Sato and Mrs. Forrest’s classes. Next year they will be available to all teachers!
My first priority was to get reading groups working on the iPad. The new National Geographic Explorer App had just what I was looking for. We read an article on thunderstorms and how they are tracked. Our task was to explain the steps of a thunderstorm in the correct order/sequence.
They recorded their ideas on a sequencing chart available in the Tools4Students App. Everyone was engaged and eager to email their graphic organizers to our class email.
