  • This presentation provided me with such great information that will be useful to me in the future as a teacher. I’m currently a senior studying early childhood/childhood education and participated in a study using the iPad in a classroom in both a fifth grade and preschool setting. A common interest across grade levels I found was the Draw and Tell application, and the book creator application. Before this I had no prior experience with the iPad so I feel as though this presentation showed a positive view on technology and a way to show the benefits in the classroom. As schools are becoming more modernized and the more opportunities classrooms have to obtain access to iPad for children’s learning. It is important that we understand the values it has in children’s education. This presentation provides us teachers with the right amount of information to begin our journey of using the iPad in the classroom to deepen children’s learning in a variety of subjects. This presentation provided me with new information about new applications I can use with children that I was unaware of before.

  • Wow, your presentation truly shows just how many effective ways there are to use an iPad as a learning tool in a classroom! You give great descriptions of a variety of apps and how they can be used by both children and teachers to document learning. During my work with three-year-olds over the past few months as an education major, I found that they enjoyed using a variety of drawing apps, but one that especially captured their attention was Draw and Tell. The children were proud of their drawings and eager to share the stories behind them. It was beneficial to have the option of recording the children’s voices so that their learning could be documented in multiple ways. I also used SoundCloud to record children’s exchanges and interactions during activities and play, this way I knew my documentation was accurate. I was able to use the camera app to take photos while recording on SoundCloud. I think uploading children’s work to a classroom blog is a great way to share their learning with parents and other professionals.

  • I knew there were a large number of applications that were suitable to use in the classroom but your presentation places them in a concise and orderly fashion. I am currently an education major and I have used iPad applications successfully in my lessons. Drawing applications were greatly enjoyed by the 3-year-old students I worked with. The use of documentation throughout the presentation provides evidence of the applications being successfully used in the classroom. This aspect led me to investigate certain applications further. The suggestion to upload work done on the iPad to a classroom blog was a wonderful idea, especially when children had access to the iPad. It is evident that, if used correctly, the iPad can have an influential and positive presence in the classroom.
