In the few short years since tablets were introduced, they have become a popular addition to classrooms across all grade levels and content areas.
By putting this device in the hands of students and teachers, we can grab hold of their interest, interact with content on a more personalized level, and monitor real-time learning.
But how we use tablets in the classroom needs thoughtful planning to ensure that the technology actually improves the teaching and learning process.
Nancy Frey, Doug Fisher, and Alex Gonzalez offer practical advice on how to effectively use tablets as part of the gradual release of responsibility from teacher to student.
You’ll learn how to ensure that tablets are integrated into high-quality instruction, including strategies for using tablets for modeling, guided instruction, collaborative learning, independent learning, and formative assessment.
Filled with examples of teachers successfully using tablets in their classrooms, this resource will help you maximize the potential of tablet technology to facilitate student understanding.
