I’ve joined the ranks of iPad owners. Maybe it is a full circle thing…my college computer was a Mac Classic II. Since then it had been PCs (lots of them, so it seems) until an iPod nano for my birthday two years ago.
Something was missing, though, from my educational repertoire. I have a school district laptop as my teacher computer so that isn’t anything to scoff about (thank you, KPBSD) but with me getting more into Twitter and technology for students, and now the Daily 5, the laptop wasn’t doing everything I wanted it to.
Today I entered grades while walking around the room, took digital notes during reading conferences and and was relatively sneaky about pulling up the projected website in class to see what else it was about so I would better understand the assignment my co-teacher planned for the class.
I love technology. Teaching with a tablet is going to be fun.
