The EE Special Area teachers, however, made it a priority and all 6 of them are now successfully integrating iPads into their curriculum. Here are some of the things they are doing with them.
1. Our Art teachers, Caitlin Maher and Erin McElroy are using the iPads for research and they are also having the third and fourth graders record their projects from start to finish using the time lapse setting on the iPad camera. Once their project is complete- students pull the clips into iMovie and edit/add text/music to complete the documentation of their projects.
2. Our Music teachers, Pat Karaguleff and Tracey Aycock, are busy with GarageBand. I was in Mrs. Karaguleff's class last week and students were taking music that they had written and creating a GarageBand version of it.
3. Our P.E. teachers, Jeannette Michael and Stephen Presley, are having students use their iPads to video themselves practicing various skills and then using the recordings for self and peer assessments. Student also will use their iPads to record their fitness scores when they do the Fitnessgram tests later this year.
Wow. How lucky are our students to have such dedicated teachers? Here are a few pictures from Mrs. Karaguleff's class.
