So what can they do?

      • Run Apps - Specialized 'programs' which run on the iPad performing certain functions
      • Record video - have student buddies record each other to document reading efforts
      • Capture pictures - for class projects and so students can see themselves actively working 
      • Record audio - use to document fluency, support students hearing themselves read, use for interviews
Recommended:
  • Load apps on specific iPads to create stations rather then loading all iPads.  This will extend your funding.
  • Select the best apps for the learning activity you are designing, learning needs you are supporting
  • Use as an individual support device, with paired students, and teams of students
  • Use for apps, websites, and digital text.   
      • iBooks - Free app included
      • Free books - 23,469 free books in multiple languages
      • See also Digital Text resource page
  • Enlist students in the learning process with a 'tech team' to help with logistics, feedback, peer support and creative uses of resources
  • Check websites prior to use in class to make sure they function properly, as sites with flash may not work as you hope
