Tool #9 Incorporating Classroom Based Devices as tools for learning

Tool #9 Assignment, create a new post in which you respond to the following:

1. I think it is very important to tie the technology to the objective, by doing this it will keep their interest and will keep the kids busy.
2. The students have to be accountable for their time, because they have only a certain number of student minutes to use and they have to use them wisely. They need to learn what the object is at their stations.
3. I looked at TenMarks and ManipulaMath. Ten Marks can easily be used to create bonus questions or review questions for the students. ManipulaMath might be too difficult for some algebra students but it had some good geometry content. This could be used for bonus, practice, or review questions. They could get part of their daily grade according to how they did on it.
4. I found many apps on the Ipad that I can use in the classroom. For tennis, they can use an app to learn any stroke, strategy, or training. It would check them for knowledge. I also found several math facts drilling websites. I could easily put them in as stations and check their scores for daily grade points.
5. Last, the Ipad has a variety of uses, least of which is research. Any reading they do is good, so I might have them read about a certain topic and then report back to me, either in writing or verbally in front of the group to promote their correct diction and ensure understanding.
