Access to Technology

  • "Each student has a laptop and we have a classroom set of iPads. Students use these devices to utilize ST Math, AR, Amplify, and more. On the Fridays that we have an exit Ttcket in math, students create Flips to explain the answers they put on their tickets. Students access Flip by going to my Canvas page. I select about two videos each week to put in a Mixtape and we watch those the following week. We call this 'Flip Friday.' I have a Promethean ActivPanel where I display our Eureka2 lessons. Students are able to come to the panel to solve problems. Both students and teachers use the Red Cat voice amplifier. Each morning, my homeroom students come into class and fill out a morning check-in. There is a Forms page that I have on Canvas. The students log in and answer questions to help me gauge where they are each morning.
