Emily Lynch talks about how to use iPads in the classroom to differentiate instruction. So many good ways exist to use iPads but how can we personalize it and make it unique?

The Power of the iPad in Kindergarten

iTeach with iPads

Last week, our school iPads were replaced. We were very excited to exchange our iPad 2’s for the new iPad Air. Our old iPads served us well but were suffering from frequent app crashes. The replacement took about a week…no small feat when you are talking about over 800 iPads. The excitement over the idea of new iPads was suddenly replaced with the knowledge that we would be without iPads for a few days.

Visionary Leadership and iPads

When I look at what the 1:1 iPad deployment has meant for my kindergarten students, I watch them using the power of this device to maximize their learning. If you want a complete educational ecosystem, a comprehensive learning environment, then iPads are the only answer. iPads allow each child to find his/her own genius.

Adapting Classic Stories with iPad

Children love classic fairy tales and many early childhood classrooms incorporate them into a unit of study.

Review: Flipwrite iPad Keyboard

Ask a Tech Teacher

I’ve read several nonscientific studies that concluded students type equally well whether they use iPads or traditional keyboards ( click here ; scroll to ‘ Keyboarding: iPad vs. Traditional’ ). These results are counter-intuitive to what common sense says is true: that the flat, non-tactile nature of the iPad onscreen keyboards make them less accurate and slower than standard keyboards.

Using iPads to Plan in Kindergarten

iTeach with iPads

My students have quite a bit of choice in this classroom the first part of the year but after Christmas, they are included in the planning of their day. Now, just as I would never open a closet door to a 3 year old and have them choose what to wear from an entire wardrobe of clothes, I would never just let go of the reins completely of the classroom. They will open their notes app on their iPads and write out their plan for the day. Productivity is never an accident.
