I am very excited about this school year. PW will have more iPads in each classroom, as well as in the library. Integrating technology into the school day will be both educational and fun. Students learn by doing. The technology helps to engage the students and get them actively involved in their learning. Students will have the opportunity to use the iPads to consume information and demonstrate their understanding. With the implementation of the Readers and Writers Workshop model, the technology will allow students to share their writing and connect to a larger audience. Specifically, PW will be using Seesaw as a digital portfolio, allowing students to upload their work and share it with others quickly and easily.
The PW Library will continue to tweet about what is happening in the library. Students can submit a 'tweet sheet' to Mrs. G, who will review and tweet the comment. This is a good writing activity, as students have to get their point across in 140 characters or less.....short & sweet! Follow us at @LibParkway.
