Tool # 9

Tool #9 showed different apps and ideas for usage. It is important to tie technology to objectives, because technology adds resources and hands-on interactive activities that keep students engaged. Students need to be held accountable at stations just like any other observable learning and make sure that students are accountable for their learning. Some interactive games that would make for great stations are "Learning Games For Kids" and "tutpup". Some Apps that looked interesting to have on the iPads are, KickBox, Thinking Games, Playtime Theater, and Multiplication Rap 2 x HD. To make sure that students accountable for learning, they would have to reflect in their journals what they did, what they learned, and any recommendations. Students would be assigned in groups of 3 and use a rubric menu. Other ways to use the iPad are for research and taking notes.
