Teaching Kids with iPads – Part 1 of 5
#edtech #edchat How to you teach these kids? A few months ago I took a survey of my elementary kids to see what kind of mobile technology they had at home and it turned out that 53% of my students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades had iPads and 82% had iPods! With over half of my students having iPads, there is no doubt that soon they will be bringing these devices to school — so it go me thinking… How do I teach students with iPads? So I called my friends over at Atomic Learning to brainstorm some ideas and we both agreed that this was a question worth answering. Planning iPad Projects: The first thing I did to get ready for my iPad Boot Camp was to start designing iPad projects, projects that were designed with a focus on Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy and the principles of UbD. Day One of iPad Boot Camp: So after two months of project planning, I started the iPad Boot Camp this past Monday with 10 students in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades to see how to teach students with iPads.
