Tool #9


  1. Why do you think it is important to tie the technology to the objective? It increases student awareness of technology in using it to meet content objectives.
  2. Why should we hold students accountable for the stations/centers? It teaches them responsibility and disciplines them in the future as they advance in their grade levels.
  3. Visit 2 of the applicable links to interactive websites for your content/grade level. Which sites did you like. Thinkfinity and Studyladder. How could you use them as stations? I will work with a group and have other stations set up while others are working in their seats. This will allow me to monitor students more closely who need the extra help. How can you hold the students accountable for their time in these stations? Students must produce a product and a reflection of their learning.
  4. List two to three apps you found for the iPod Touch/iPad that you can use in your classroom. What do you see that station looking like? How can you hold the students accountable for their time in these stations? Thinkfinity and Studyladder . Each station is labeled and set in a rotation. Students will be reminded of the rules and must use them as they will be monitored during this time.
  5. What about other ways to use the iPod Touch/iPad? Share another way you can see your students using the device as a station. I can't think of anymore at this time.
