iPods in the Classroom and Home
Bate Middle School recently received a grant through Striving Readers allowing us to pursue a pilot program using iPod Touches, but we didn’t want to chain them to classroom. We felt that in order to prepare students for a mobile society, they had to go home with them too. Over the course of the next year TeacherTechBlog will exclusively focus on the happenings of this project. The hope is that we will learn through these reflections and equip others to join in this vision. In upcoming posts, you’re going to hear about implementation, apps that make it happen, and strategies for classroom management. Feel free to join us in the journey by submitting your thoughts, ideas, and questions.
By incorporating technology in the classroom, the children will know how to take full advantage of these useful tools for learning and might even consider an online education when applying to different college programs in the future.
