After viewing the tutorials for the new technology, I learned that I need to open an ITunes account. I also learned where to find district approved apps, and I learned how to down load free apps. I am already familiar with the MacBooks because of the T3 grant. Having used technology for 2 years in my class, I suggest creating rules for the use of the technology and discussing these with the students before beginning any project. Using a rubric for each project also helps the children to focus their work. Giving students ample time to create projects can be a problem, but I have found the students respond well to a set time schedule. All in all, I have enjoyed using the technology I received through the T3 grant. I look forward to receiving additional technology in the fall.
