It's a new school year and teachers are doing the amazing things they do to make kids feel welcome. Seats are assigned, lunchbox routines are being established, and homework turn in spots are being made known. Something that teachers are working hard on is rolling out some great technology routines. We use iPads and other technology as tools for learning and creating, and our teachers know it is important students view them that way.
This is not to say that the devices aren't good for entertaining, they certainly are. Last year some of my students made educational games as part of their learning, and it was awesome. The devices can open up some amazing doors for our students, and I'm so excited to see teachers embracing technology in ways that will help our students grow their learning.
