This presentation will use a workshop style to coach educators in how to incorporate iPads into all aspects of their classroom instruction. During the 2012-2013 school year the presenter used iPads on a daily basis in her 4th grade inner-city inclusion classroom. Students participating were ELL, autism spectrum disorder, gifted and talented, learning disabled, and from 7 different countries, yet the iPads were the great equalizer in the classroom. None of the students had any experience using touch screen technology in the classroom and all of them, even the most challenged, became adept at research, math, writing and reading on the iPads. Students used a variety of apps to achieve success across the curriculum while at the same time meeting common core standards. The children used the iPads:
• to build math skills from addition to solving multistep word problems
• to increase vocabulary
• to build fluency
• for reluctant readers to become excited, engaged readers
• to conduct research
• to participate in project based learning in science, social studies, literacy and math
• And for each student, regardless of challenges, to write and illustrate their own novel.
Educators who attend this workshop will be given an overview of the year-long integration and hands-on strategies in how to incorporate iPads into their classrooms. The iPads were bought through a grant the presenter wrote and the presenter was self-educated in how to use the iPads. So in other words – any willing educator can have the same success in his/her classroom! Appropriate apps, teaching strategies, and classroom grant writing hints will be presented and supporting materials will be distributed.
