Video: 5th grade goes one-to-one with iPads!

Look out TAOTS!  5th graders have 1 iPad per student, and they are breaking them in by accessing new research resources online, communicating with their teachers in Google Classroom, and typing their work in Google Drive, where teachers and peers can collaborate online and give feedback.

Today they got a crash course in the iPad App “Explain Everything” which they will use to create screencast videos and PSAs in their Media Literacy Cluster, and to use as a whiteboard for showing math work, annotating texts, student-made tutorials, and more!
