I am planning to take a workshop in the holidays that highlights the use of iPads within the maths programme.

 I am very keen to hear from all of you about what is working well, at what levels and why?  

I myself have had recent success with the show me app.  Students will use this app to reconsolidate learning independently by recording their WALT and strategies used to achieve success.  

 It is an excellent way to gather evidennce of learning through the students writing, retell being written and steps verbally recorded, as well as photos taken and recorded if materials are used to problem solve.  This can then be emailed to the teacher or uploaded to the class blog page. 

I look forward to you sharing some of your success stories of what apps are being used within your maths programme.

    Hi Barbara.  We have just purchased Otterboxes for our iPads in the Junior syndicate. The rrp was $133, but we managed to have the company sell them to us for $93 ex GST.  We chose the Otterboxes because we wanted good protection, as we have seen iPads elsewhere being dropped and the screen being broken.  We did look at other covers and the one we were originally going to buy (but not as robust) was $10 cheaper than the 'final' Otterbox price. Our iPads are being shared between rooms.  Even though we know our students will treat them with reasonable care, we have erred on the side of caution.
