Using technology in meaningful, developmentally appropriate ways to make learning come alive and differentiate instruction so that all students achieve.
I hope this blog is helpful to anyone utilizing technology with children. If you have found it useful, I appreciate you letting me know and sharing with others.
Here are some of the LiveBinder's I've created to accompany my seminars- they have lots of information and links to sites that focus on using technology in kindergarten, with an emphasis on iPads for both the beginner and advanced iPad user. It's something I hope to add to as I find more resources, so I hope you'll bookmark and come back often! Let me know if you find it useful or have links you think I should include.
