RAZZLE DAZZLING THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE WITH IPADS


The Star Cluster teachers and students gave a presentation of how these dynamic 1:1 mobile devices have impacted their learning and teaching to Medfield's School Committee tonight. The team highlighted organization, accessibility, communication, collaboration and fluid adaptation as five areas of noted enhancement. (The above photo shows students explaining their experiential learning with the iPad.)

The School Committe members were also engaged in understanding the iPads capabilities with a showcase of our go-to apps such as Nearpod, iBooks, and Evernote. But the real potential was demonstrated by our 8th graders in their use of the screencasting app, Explain Everything to draw math solutions with narration and pulling in actual photos of a hands-on activity as a part of an interactive study guide. (The below photo is of Seth Hellerstein, English teacher demonstrating a Nearpod presentation as students assist school committee members with the iPads.)



Bravo to those who presented.  It's hard not to feel the excitement in seeing the vast possibilities the iPad offers to students! Being only 6 months into it, we've only scratched the surface! So stay tuned!
