Agenda:
I. iPad Applications
II. Web-Based Instructional Technology Tools and Resources
 
Age range: 4 to 6 for the first 3 screenshots
                  2 to 4 for the last two screenshots
To help students practice their sight words, ABCs, phonics skills, reading and writing skills you can find apps with high instructional potential bellow. These apps are good for helping students transfer newly learned information into their long-term memory, for helping students develop automaticity, and can be used as opportunities for extra practice or remedial purposes. 
Three benefits of these instructional technologies: 
  • students get immediate feedback,
  • increase student motivation,
  • save teacher time.
Use your best judgment regarding what apps you want your students to use, when, for how long, and who would benefit from using them. Features to look for when choosing instructional software: Is it interactive? Does it keep track of students’ progress? Does it provide feedback? 
 
Apps that target the higher spectrum of the Bloom’s Taxonomy (analysis, evaluation, and creativity) will be published on a future post.
