Sam and I shared how our students are currently mashing-up their app classwork on the iPADs. Reviewed use of show me, lino board, visualize, and skitch. We also practiced air dropping work back and forth between ipads, macbooks, and iphones. Their are multiple advantages for students resourcefully completing their learning objectives on the iPADs, rather than on paper, primarily that the student engagement is at its highest peak. Students access more areas of their brain when completing work using technology, as well as the ‘fun’ factor is in full effect. We are looking forward to a joined project between Y5V and Y2V in a couple of weeks, combining BYOD and mash-ups!
