Thoughts from a District 112 Grant Recipient!
I applied for two different grants from the foundation. Both grants have allowed me to have more technology in my room. The grants were to help our top readers access more reading material digitally.
Since receiving the iPads they have been used in many different ways.
Ø They are a resource tool for students to access information.
Ø Last year 3rd graders used an app to learn Hands-On Algebra
Ø Students have used them to read books that are e-books in our library as well as read digital books I purchased with the grant money.
Ø The art teacher has installed an origami app so that students can have another station that allows them to personalize their learning in art.
Ø We use it with our Achieve 3000 reading program for students to have more devices to work with the program in school.
Ø The Special Ed department has used them as an incentive for students to earn time to play a game on them at the end of their day.
Ø Students have used an app to Lexile their classroom library books, this scans the bar code and gives them the Lexile number quickly so that the books ready for students to read at the correct Lexile.
Ø I am able to also use it as I work with kids individually on small group projects
