HOT SHOTS: Summit School Students Get iPads
About two dozen Summit School sixth graders are participating in an iPad pilot program. On Thursday morning, they got to go on a scavenger hunt to take photos with their new devices. The scavenger hunt ended with a party in the art room. These sixth grade students will be using the iPads in all aspects of their day-to-day instruction and home life.
Technology is finding a place in many schools. The multi-sensory component to using the device will complement Summit’s current curriculum and instructional strategies.
The teachers who have been using iPads have been keeping a blog at summitipads.wordpress.com. Since August, teachers have written about sturdy, kid-friendly cases, educational apps and apps for students to build skills at home and at school.
Summit hopes that students and parents will join in the blogging to collaborate about how the iPads are being used. Here are some photos of the students during Thursday morning’s scavenger hunt:
