What is a LearnPad? A LearnPad is basically a tablet designed specifically for education.
A LearnPad is similar to an iPad, except that the LearnPad is more easily manageable by the teacher to control the educational content and applications that run on each device. For more information, check out this article: LearnPad vs. iPad
Mrs. Kostiuk is at a Webinar today to learn more about LearnPads and after Spring Break we will be using them in our classroom! We are going to be a Pilot classroom in our district to experiment with all of the amazing things you can do with this tablet at school.
What are you excited to use the LearnPad for?
How do you think we can use the LearnPads in our classroom and school?
Mrs. Kostiuk’s Dad is a BIG basketball fan, and every March there is a College Basketball tournament in the USA known as “March Madness”. This March, our class will be participating in a tournament of our own…but instead of basketball, we are going to use poetry! (Thank you for the idea, Mr. Salsich!) Every week there will be a post of students in our class reading different poems they have chosen, and a poll to vote on your weekly favourite. When we return from Spring Break, we will be down to the “Final Four” in our quest to find our favourite poem! Stay tuned each week…even throughout Spring Break…and remember to vote!
