Class Agenda Session 4:
(Take breaks as needed)

Today Students Will:
  • Share a favorite app
  • Collaborate in small groups
  • Have Round-table Discussions
  • Reflect on the impact of the iPad and lessons learned

Round Table Discussion
Read the article from the Huffington Post on the debate between iPads and Laptops. Hold a Round table discussion on the topic. What is your opinion, is one device better than the other? How do you see the iPad impacting the North Fond du Lac School District?

View the 21st Century Video and hold a Round table discussion on the idea of schools moving into the 21st Century and the comment we heard earlier this week that "the NFDL school district needs to keep up so they do not become a Borders Bookstore".

Assignment #7 Journal Reflection

Write a brief reflection (300-400 words) and include:

  • What impact do you expect to see as a result of using this technology in the classroom?
  • How do you plan to continue to use your iPad in your personal life? Professional life?
  • What have you learned from others' sharing that you would like to try or explore more of?
  • If you attended the Marian University John C. Riley Educational Technology Day, please comment on the sessions you attended including at least 3 things you learned throughout the day and 2 technology tools you hope to use this school year.

Upload the document to your wiki page and title it "Reflection".
