My students are spoiled with technology. But is that a bad thing? We start our day with our announcements on the computer. I send my morning "to do" list to them in the form of a rap using an app that they can listen to on their on device. They watch a video to activate our daily lesson essential question and send me a email when they have finished their research. I can provide immediate feedback on their work.
Here students are using an iPad to look for information on one of Newtons laws. They are actively in charge of their learning. I am clearly the facilitator. When finished they can choose a creative way to share their work. Students have used stop motion to create a movie or slide share to display facts for future classes.
