iPads are Essential in Today's Elementary Classroom
Ms. Carly Duerr, 3rd grade teacher at Centennial, is new to the Edmond Public School district and is enjoying the opportunity her students have with the 1:2 access to iPads in her classroom. On a recent assignment, her students used the iPads for research when they were studying Biographies. By having access to the iPads, students not only had access to written content, without having to gather many books and other resources, but they also had instant access to videos that helped them with their project. In the photo below you can see some of her students working on their Biography project, listening to books on Epic (an AMAZING and FREE app with TONS of books for students to listen to and read along with) and working with the Math Slide app (an app that allows students to compete against each other at the same time).
