Yarmouth Elementary iPad Roundtable

Today was the first of what we hope will be a series of iPad Roundtable conversations. About thirty educators from area schools gathered at Rowe School from 3:30-5:00. Tara Maker, the regional Apple Sales rep., and Jim Moulton, K-12 Education Development Executive at Apple, provided snacks and managed the registration. We had determined three topics for possible discussion:
 • Using the Book Creator app for students and teachers to make books that are read via iBooks - getting started!
• Using 1:1 iPads - what apps work well, what ideas can we share?
• Using iPads at stations in grades K-5

Groups formed around the three topics with some people moving between groups. There were a mix of technology integrators and classroom teachers from grades K-5. I learned some new tips about using any iPad as well as some good app recommendations.

First Grade iPads - Setting Up for Learning

The First Grade Team and I met this week during their team meeting. We set up the use of the projectors with the Apple TV receivers. Each teacher has a password to be able to connect to the correct receiver as she moves around the room showing the iPad on the large screen. Everyone is using:

  • SightWords
  • MathWise
  • Handwriting with DoodleBuddy 
  • as well as connecting to TumbleBooks online.

Teachers are using the still and video camera capability of the iPads to record student learning and posting blog entries.
