For the first time in education, kids in kindergarten are using the same technology as the executives in charge of education and beyond. Many grown-ups have the iPhone and we have iPod touches and iPads. Our kids are pinching, swiping and tapping their way to success. The power of the Apple iOS (operating system) allows students to capture, create, share and engage in learning, like never before. Did you know the iOS has built in text to speech capabilities? Come and learn about how these devices are playing a role in student achievement. In this session, ECOO conference delegates will hear our story about deploying idevices in the primary classroom to support inquiry based learning. We will explore the out-of-the-box capabilities of the devices as well as share our list of favourite applications. An early years teacher, primary teacher and principal will each share her point of view on the possibilities of this technology in the classroom. We will each explore how the integration of the devices has replaced, enhanced or changed our practice and perspective on teaching and learning.
