Tip #5: The iPad needs to have a
purpose in the classroom and
students need to know the purpose.

“nearly 75 percent of all students said that the iPad was very helpful or slightly helpful for sharing information with others in class” Using the iPads Take the TIME to play with the Apps

See how you can use them in your classroom!

“You can learn things and learn from [them] and don’t go to Angry Birds”
-Destiny, 1st grader at Briar Vista
