My Learning with the Tllp

I feel like I have grown a lot in the last two years with IPads and technology.  I feel that I am not getting paid to teacher but I am getting paid to help students learn (taken from Bruce Rodrigez CEO of EQAO).  I am guiding my students with the activities that we need to complete from the curriculum but they are choosing the platform to show their learning.  In my class, we are discovering apps together and when one students figures something out, we stop and learn it together.  ( I am the one student that needs to be shown twice!! )  This year, my students are much more engaged in their learning and are so excited to show their parents, their former teachers and other students their work.  When a teacher is interested in an app that we are working on in class…I will send my IPad team to teach the teacher or his/her class the app that they want to learn. It is so exciting to see my students teaching other adults and students I our school!

  1. I love that you are sending your students – or “iPad team” 🙂 out into your school to support other teachers and students. That is so empowering for your learners and provides them with exciting opportunities to be leaders. I am looking forward to spending more time with you, your students, and your staff in the New Year.


  2. That’s awesome! I love the idea of an “iPad team” too! May need to steal that idea for SPS.
    Thanks for sharing,


  3. My class (2/3) introduced the grade 5 class to blogging the other day and my students were thrilled and even slightly confused when I explained to them that they would be the “teachers”. Their response was “but we are younger than them”. Once they had completed the session with the grade 5’s they felt empowered and understood how hey could be the teachers. I think the idea of an iPad team is wonderful. I guess my kids have been the “blogging team” and we will definitely be teaching other junior grades in our school all that we know about blogging. It was absolutely a benefit for everyone involved.
