IPAD PROJECTS & ORGANIZATION IN THE ELEMENTARY CLASSROOM Rose Park Pine Valley Elementary firstname.lastname@example.org
A LITTLE ABOUT US I am committed to fostering a love of literature through Guided Reading – children are directly taught how to access literature. Reading skills taught in small groups through trade books Integration of CCLS into our proven literacy programs As part of our classroom routine, children are expected to work independently yet also given individual attention at their level.
TECH SUPPORT Wi-Fi throughout entire school, with wired desktop teacher station in each room Students are given limited email accounts Committed technology department with Technology Director, Technology Integration Specialist, and Technicians Classrooms wired with projectors, AirLiners and microphones iPads connected to projection system through desktops Repair/update requests handled through an automated Help Desk 1:1 iPad deployment in classrooms 3-6 Teachers train other teachers in a mutual exchange of skills/information Desktop Computer Lab shared by K-6 2 Laptop carts shared by K-6 Concerted effort to use iPad platform for most uses Goal is to be as paperless as possible
PHILOSOPHY Students need to learn higher order thinking skills, organization and self-discipline. Classroom management is about teaching children to organize, self-direct and prioritize. Major goal is to teach children how to gather and organize reference sources.
FOUNDATIONS A few important general concepts to teach early: *paraphrasing *inferencing *close reading *general/specific *literal / figurative *intellectual property and citation of sources These are keystones to a major research report required of all Pine Valley third graders in the spring which is part of a distance learning project with the Buffalo Zoo
HOW IPADS FIT The iPad is a powerful tool for delivering: *high interest skills practice *the means to connect and communicate with each other and the world *guided practice *individualized reference tools.

PROJECTS – KEEPER
PROJECTS – KEEPER Students are taught how to use Keeper to track their passwords I keep their Keeper passwords in case they lose them Yes, it’s a lot of upfront work to set up the accounts The payoff is that lessons can run much more smoothly if students are able to keep track of their own login information
