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!

    Sarah Taylor from Tauranga School has written a brilliant snapshot for Sofware for Learning that shows how she is using iPads in her junior classroom. She has included videos in the snapshot that really give you a feel for how her class functions while the iPads are in use. I think this is a great resource for junior teachers using iPads and for anyone looking at how to introduce iPads into their school. I'm sure she would love some feedback so make sure you leave her a comment. She may be more likely to see comments left under the snapshot itself :)

    Hi all.  There is a new snapshot of learning up in the Software for Learning group showing how another junior teacher incorporates a range of tools into her e-learning classroom including iPads.
