Best Practices and Strategies for iPads in the Elementary Classroom

Tips for iPad Classrooms:

1. Unlimited free apps, but be thoughtful
2. Apps can work like IEPs
3. Students have more ownership with creation-based apps
4. Let your classroom go through "stages of implementation"
5. Work hard to change up usage, i.e. - individual, pairs, groups, whole class
6. Be a part of a professional-learning group, even if you are passive (Twitter, etc.)
