Topic

iPad use in language arts

Description

Technology is becoming more and more prevalent in today’s world. It can be seen everywhere in the real world, so should it be used as a teaching tool with our young learners? When iPads are incorporated into language arts blocks in early education classrooms, students are more engaged in their learning and more motivated to succeed (Beam & Williams, 2015). Students are able to collaborate, interact and become more social in their learning with iPads (Beschorner & Hutchison, 2013). In order to make the most out of the technology as a valuable learning tool, teachers must model, scaffold, and help children to successfully navigate the iPad and apps (Couse & Chen, 2010)

Key factors in incorporating iPads into the classroom with effective and meaningful instruction will be discussed.
