Tool #8 Devices in our school
I am excited that the teachers and students at Bunker Hill have access to netbooks, ipods/itouches and ipads. I have used all of these, so although I didn't learn anything new about the devices, I am excited to help teachers get started implementing these in their classrooms. As the intervention specialist, I can see how having devices such as these would be beneficial. Students who need extra practice on a skill can be working independently on a netbook or ipad. Students who need a different presentation style due to learning style differences can be using one of these devices as well. I don't have a classroom per se so I would be managing them but I have lots of ideas from having contracts and organizational systems to lessons on appropriate use. Having a couple of student managers really helps as well.
