Using Technology in an Elementary Classroom
Working with Elementary students can be rewarding, yet challenging. This year, I struggled differentiating my math lessons, and keeping my kids engaged during my lessons.
THEN, I made a change. I created Math stations including a technology station. Even with only 7 iPads in the classroom, it worked! ALL of my students had access to technology, not just the "early finishers". I researched different apps, to see which ones worked to meet the individual needs of students.
After a few weeks of math stations, I slowly introduced Google Apps for Education (GAFE), including my own Google Classroom!
The effect on student learning was immediate - just by introducing math rotations and technology, the students now had choice, and had activities that matched their ability levels. Plus, students were (almost) always on task!
