  • 1. THE COMPLETE MOBILE MATH CLASSROOM Haverford Township School District CASE STUDY USING IPADS TO SHOW WORK AND INTERACT WITH THE CLASS CHALLENGE Fred Brown is the K-12 Math Coordinator for the Haverford Township School District, located outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Haverford is a high-performing district with approximately 5,900 students. Recently, Fred implemented a new year-long Algebra 1 class and needed a way to help students better understand the material while keeping them actively engaged in the classroom. SOLUTION Fred turned to Turning Technologies’ Insight 360 as a resource for teachers to gain immediate feedback of what concepts students understood or struggled to comprehend. Insight 360 software integrates instruction with formative assessment, allowing educators to facilitate, annotate and remediate from anywhere in the classroom. Students are able to demonstrate and evaluate a full explanation with an iPad® as opposed to just submitting an answer. Originally, the all-in-one classroom instruction system was introduced to several second grade classes. Soon after, nearly 175 students across grades 8 and 9 were using Insight 360 with iPad and iPad minis several times a week to answer math problems while interacting with teachers and classmates. Insight 360 creates a learning environment that is more streamlined and seamless. CONCLUSION Educators across the district have noticed a significant improvement in students’ engagement in the year- long Algebra 1 class. “We’ve had nothing, but positive feedback from teachers and the kids absolutely love the technology,” Brown said. “It’s less threatening to the students and teachers can now understand whether they comprehend the material.” Right now, Insight 360 is being integrated in eighth grade math classes for struggling learners and in the year-long Algebra 1 classes to see what impact it will have on test scores and the PA Keystone Algebra 1 Exam. The school district hopes to purchase more iPads and expand its usage of Insight 360 with other classes once it secures additional funding from the state.
