Our next stop was in Kaley Coffield's Classroom. This is her diagram of what she had going on in her room while we were there. Kaley had broken her class down into groups based on their interest in the apps that were presented. In addition to showcasing their work, students were demonstrating how to use their selected app.
This year's visitors were from 2 different schools in San Antonio and were an absolute pleasure to host. We tried a different approach this year which I think was really successful. Three of our wonderful EE teachers agreed to showcase their students' iPad expertise by allowing us to spend 30 minutes in their rooms asking questions and listening to students explain their work. Each teacher took a different approach and all 3 were equally as wonderful.
The last room we visited was Erin Krieger's GT classroom where the students were in the process of making stop motion videos as a culminating activity for a research project on whales.
At the end of the day, both Natalie Brewer and Erin Krieger were able to join teachers from BridgePoint Elementary and Hill Country Middle School on a panel where they answered questions posed by the iLeap Participants.
