Tool-ing up for learning

Today in reading we spent some time exploring some of the tools and resources that are available to support our learning using our iPads.

We read books, recorded ourselves reading to check for fluency and expression, played ‘Spellamania’ and created videos to explain the definitions of new words using ‘Puppet Pals’.

We loved using the technology as a tool to help us develop our reading skills and strategies.

Alyssa created ‘word of the week’ videos using Puppet Pals to explain some new words she had come across in her reading.

Latin

At the end of the session we used the voice recording tool to record students reflections on using the iPads during the reading session. Listen to what the kids had to share here Ipad teflection 25 March 2013
