Year 5 students practised accessing a shared Google Document on the iPad using the Google Drive, which opens the Google Docs app. They learned that it takes patience and cooperation to edit the same document with 10 or more people at the same time. The class will use Google Docs to create a student handbook in the form of an e-book.
Its the beginning of the school year and we discussed the way we would use iPads in the classroom. We need to have essential agreements on how to and how not to handle iPads in the classrooms. We will always refer back to these agreements when ever we need a reminder. Students signed off to show their commitment to the agreements discussed.
Our iPad agreements will be posted in every classroom.
