This is a great blog, thank you. We are about to introduce iPads in our EYFS (UK 3-5 year olds) so it’s great to see the way someone is using them with younger children!
Thank you! Good luck with your project!
I love your blog, it has been so helpful to me. I wrote to you a year or so ago asking your thoughts on some issues related to an ipad grant that I wrote. I have been implementing a set of 5 ipads in my 1st grade classroom this year. Our district decided to go 1-to-1 next year. They have asked me to create a training video on the ipad to demonstrate to other teachers how to implement either Explain Everything, Notability, GarageBand, or iPhoto. I have watched numerous tutorials myself, but I’ve never understood how to make a video on the ipad while demonstrating on it at the same time! Can you tell me how to do this? Also, is there one of those apps that you would recommend me demonstrating over the others? If you have time, could you send me an email?
I just sent you an email.
