This year with the 5th grade library classes, we are using them every single week and the fact that each kid gets to have their own access to the library homepage/catalog/databases and not have to "partner up or triple up" with their classmates is making a HUGE impact on their learning and they are better digesting what we are teaching them about library research skills.
I am seeing light bulbs go off and skills-sets sharpening in only two rotations. It's really making a difference with the library curriculum and I can only imagine the impact it is having in other classrooms.
-Cindy Stahoviak (Librarian) Initial Reflections on the iPad at Dawson It's pretty fluid and I don't have to make a lot of special plans to integrate it. It's one of many tools and students have been very responsible with the equipment and the increased access to the Internet.
-Doug Troise (6th grade) I love that when the students do math on the iPad with IXL, they get immediate reinforcement and corrections of their work. They cannot wait to get to their math work when it is on the iPad.
-RuthAnne Schedler (6th grade) It's been a lot smoother than I thought it would be, and I am using it almost everyday for something. Students always finish assignments at different times and sometimes it can be problematic keeping students quiet while others finish. However, now that the students have their iPads, they can read their book report book since they have it with them on the iPad or they can use another app.
-Brenda Lord(5th grade) I like how Lisa Ha-Ngoc is using the iPad to have the kids record things in Spanish. They will frequently record things over and over just so that they do it in a voice they like. This repetition is an inadvertent benefit to recording on the iPad.
