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!

    Hi,

    We have just started BYOD for Year 9s at Mount Albert Grammar School and the department has created ibooks for a good portion of what is taught in the year. All the .ibook and .iba files are available at: www.magsmaths.com

    What this essentially means is that you not only have ibooks to use with your students on the ipad but you also have the author files to add/remove from them as you feel fit on your mac laptop. We are hoping that if you improve them you send your improvement to mathsbyod@mags.school.nz (this could lead to some great collaboration, all is explained at website)

    Once again, the website is www.magsmaths.com
