How to develop independent iPad activities to promote higher order thinking in reading for a Year One class?
This year is the first time I am using one on one devices in my teaching practice. I have a class of Year Ones ranging from new entrants to those who started school at the end of last year. Using one on one devices is a giant step away from traditional teaching but it is an exciting development. We have the support of a facilitator and our colleagues.
We are using the apps Explain Everything and in small steps have introduced the children to the processes of and tools needed, to take photos, move a photo around the page, make it larger and smaller, write with a stylus, and record their learning.
