  • Sustainable student learning happens when students’ abilities are validated, explored, and challenged in an environment that fosters student discourse. We'll share how we've been using iPad video features in middle school math classrooms to develop students' accountable talk and deepen students' mathematical practices.


  • Introductions
  • A Little Background
  • Phase 1: Initial Experiences
    •       stations
    •       educreations
    •       skilled-based games
  • How can I use iPads on a continual basis to improve learning?
  • Phase 2: Procedures
    •       establishing routines
    •       exit ticket

  • Phase 3: Communication
    •       sustained use piece
    •       communicating through
                  teacher - student
                  student - student
  • I'm having more and more trouble having students work together
  • Phase 4: iPad Becomes a Tool
    •       distributed handout
    •       decisions
    •       make a plan
    •       reflect and revise
    •       practice for performance
    •       performance & peer feedback
  • I am starting to look at iPad use not as daily use but as a tool for a unit.
  • I feel it will always be this spectrum of a learning process not only for the students but the teachers as well.
