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!

    I don't think you can beat Pic Collage as a creative app for the children to use in literacy.  I use it for the children to follow up their reading  eg write summaries, predictions and illustrate with photos, making posters and banners to illustrate the main idea or recommend books, record observations, illustrate points with photos and captions.  The options are endless.  We don't print them out but share them via email with parents as a record of work or via the reflector for other learners in the class.  The children quickly become experts at using the app - it's a tool that really works.
