iPads in the Junior Classroom

Hi, I would love to know what others are doing with iPads in their classrooms!  I am in a year two class and we have been doing a range of things with them in our room! 

- I use them as part of my reading rotation and specify what apps I want the students to use. 

- I also use it as part of my maths rotation and again specify the apps I want the students to use. 

- I have also got apple t.v set up in my room and use this to airplay shared reading!  My students love reading along with the wonkey donkey! 

- I have also used mirroring and the whiteboard app in a maths group situation where students solve problems on their iPad and then turn the mirroring on as they share how they solved the problem with others!

- I have also worked with students to create their own comic lifes about atheletics day.

Would LOVE to hear what others are doing!

    Try checking that the wifi is still turned on and connected - sounds silly, but it has happened to me. Has someone changed the email account details without you realising (I disable the ability to alter accounts). Try shutting down the iPad and then restarting it?

    Good luck!

    Hi Angela

    That sounds like a useful app. Can the students add their own photos and drawings to their stories? I'd love to see a link to your class website so I can see how it all looks and how you add the pdfs too.

    That looks great, thanks for sharing, Angela. That looks like they could produce stories quite quickly, and a good idea of yours to publish on your site as jpegs. I like your class site, too. I'll have a closer look at the app.
