Confirmed: iPads Extend a Teacher’s Impact on Kindergarten Literacy

http://multiplepathways.wordpress.com/2012/02/16/confirmed-ipads-extend-a-teachers-impact-on-kindergarten-literacy/

We asked our kindergarten teachers that question. Anyone walking by one of the classrooms can certainly see that student engagement and motivation is up when using the iPads. But our kindergarten teachers teased it out further. Because they are engaged, students are practicing longer. They are getting immediate feedback, so they are practicing better. Because we correlate our apps to our curriculum, they are practicing the right stuff. Because we select apps that won’t let students do things just any way, we know the students are practicing the right way. Because they are engaged, teachers are more free to work one on one with the students who need extra support at that moment.
