Year Two of 1:1 in Grade One

Posted on August 5, 2014 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

Ok...so now a year has passed since my last blog on using iPads in a 1:1 grade one classroom.  I've learned a lot along the way.  I'm sorry I didn't write as I was learning, but this was a roller-coaster year of trying, failing, changing and (sometimes) succeeding... only to try, fail and sometimes succeed again.  I call it my lather, rinse, repeat process.  Now I am a week out of school and have time to share both my…

Instant feedback to children is of vital importance when it comes to reinforcing a newly-learned skill. When there is only one teacher in the room, instant feedback doesn't happen often enough. Today, I had seventeen…

Hi Irene!
I have missed seeing you on Twitter...seems like it's been for over 6 months now. I hope all is well. Are you still tweeting? I checked your twitter handle here in your page and it went to an error page. Hope to see you, soon!
All the best, Lisa

I use it to recognize people who contribute and bring value to this PLN. It allows others to see you and recognize that you are a contributor. They can then friend and follow for a more personal connection. You have to settle for this, because I have no cash.
