You pointed out a lot of things that I didn’t think about that I really like. For instance, iPads can assist students in improving their fine motor skills. In addition, I also agree that the iPad should be seen as a positive reinforcement to students who are well behaved and who have complied to instruction. You also saw this as an opportunity to test students listening and allow “leader” students to participate in a little teaching as well.
I feel as though the iPad enhances lessons and makes students more interested in reinforcing what they have learned. I also really liked the Mathboard app and truly believe that students would respond favorably while learning.
