My students will be using the schools iPads for the ancient Egypt project. This is the first time ipads are available for use in the classroom and the students are very excited about using them! We will be using the ipads as a resource tool for the ancient Egypt project. The students will be arranged in groups to support and share their ideas and present their findings to the whole class. The students will be using the various applications on the ipad for generating research and create a writing assignment about the "Turning Points" of Egypt and how they affected society. In addition, they will create an iMovie.
Putting an ipad in the hands of a student is not just a cool toy, but rather a powerful tool that is changing the face of education.
I welcome the support of the Instructional Technology Department for providing us with hands on support throughout the project.
