St Anthony's Technology News


Welcome back! Last week I shared with you some Numeracy tools for use in the classroom. This week will be similar and before the end of the year we will be putting a range of apps on your classes ipads for you to use. They are especially good for vulnerable students as they provide immediate feedback and allow for students to experience success, which is vital for student confidence.

Thanks again to those who joined me last week for a mini lesson on the Program builder and the cloud desktop. If you could not make it and would like more information, please contact me.

Math Tappers Apps for Ipads

All of these games are available to download from the App store. They record progress of students who use the app which allows for easy tracking. They are iphone apps but can still be used on ipads. With reflector in each grade they can be used as a warm up exercise or small group. They are all free and will be downloaded on all ipads in the coming weeks. Feel free to download them onto your device and trial them for yourself. For more information
