Tool #9 Classroom based devises as tools for learning


  1. Why do you think it is important to tie the technology to the objective? I always say that our students are born with a remote on their hands, technology is all they know. you want them to learn anything do it their way or let them apply is on their "real life" because technology is their life.
  2. Why should we hold students accountable for the stations/centers? Students should be required to have a product at the end, even if it is " Tell me what you learned about..." students need to be accountable.
  3. Which sites did you like. Learning games for kids- I know they will love those games. Thinkfinity- really good for creating documents and PhET- simulations for Science class. Students should always complete an assessment after completing the activity.
  4. List two to three apps you found for the iPod Touch/iPad that you can use in your classroom. Bamboo Paper- gives the student the opportunity to write freely, they will take notes faster. ESO top 100- visual aids to comcepts and places discussed in class. Popular Mechanics Quake Tracker- relate the movement of the earth with plate tectonic, very useful for that unit.
  5. Share another way you can see your students using the device as a station. Dividing a long lab in different parts, each group would do only one part and using these tools explain to the other groups their part.
