Grade 4 1-1 iPad task

Grade 4 students leap towards their 1 to 1 iPad adventures


Over the next few weeks, the Grade 5 teachers will be visiting the Grade 4 classrooms with a tub full of surprises…..iPads! The Grade 5 team have prepared two sessions to engage students and explore the multimedia possibilities in a 1 to 1 classroom, but not forgetting to reflect upon important cybersmart protocols. Grade 5, 2013 is only a term away!

The Parent Information night (held in the Community Center at APPS on Wednesday 17th October), further explained 1 to 1 learning. A number of this year’s grade 5 students presented an app that they have found useful to engage, enhance and support their learning in 2012.

So Grade 4s…Can you describe 5 things that excite you about using iPads in Grade 5 in 2013?

  3. Dear Mrs Morgan
    The iPad is touch screen so it’s interactive instead of the computer witch means you don’t need to actually touch the keys in person.
    You get to play Games on it after school and use it in a fun way in school
    To be able to do your work on it ( homework, school work ect.)
    To be able to write much quicker and faster.
    To be able to use a iPad in class and don’t get in trouble.

  12. 5 Things we are looking forward to about the IPads next year! By Tiarne and Jack B.

    It will be much easier to finish work in and out of the classroom.

    It would be much more detailed to do homework on the iPads instead of in our excersise books.

    More exciting to do work, activities and problems.

    A great resource to search up information.

    Reading books silently on our iPads for silent reading.

    Thanks for teaching us Mrs Morgan!
