1. In a classroom with only one iPad? Assign students to be Classroom Paparazzi and have them capture the learning process for newsletters, conferences and slideshows.
2. Ditch the “There’s an app for that” approach and focus on one screen of apps. Just because there is an app, it doesn’t mean it helps students learn.
3. Teach digital culture! Train students to update apps, software and backup important work. Assign tech helpers in each class for level 1 tech support.
4. Help lost iPads find their owners! Have students use Pic Collage to create custom lock screens and include name, picture and other age appropriate content.
5. Define a workflow for digital assignments! Classrooms with routines thrive so check out Google Classroom, SeeSaw, and Schoology.
6. Things don’t always go as planned? Remember, F.A.I.L. is a first attempt in learning.
7. Digitize your strengths. Use iPads to enhance what you already know and do well, and then build.
8. Say goodbye to the what-did-you-do-over-the-summer-assignment and have students show you. Use iMovie, Book Creator or Explain Everything to create “SUMMERies.”
9. Give every student a voice! Make sure one of these great formative assessment platforms (Socrative, Kahoot, Peardeck, Quizizz) are part of your classroom routine.
