Ira Harbison is focused on achieving the 21st century classroom by incorporating ipads to enhance instruction and independent practice. Teachers will use many of the applications (“apps”) to enhance our standard-based curriculum and focus on the needs of each individual student.
Students will work independently on apps chosen by the teacher to address each child’s individual instructional levels in language arts and math. Utilizing ipads allows students to reach standards using multimedia, arts, and technology as part of a dynamic curriculum.
Transforming your classroom into the digital age is an important, although challenging, endeavor. Appropriate skills must be practiced and accountability must be integrated. This website is designed as a resource for the second grade team to collaborate, research, share ideas, and make the whole process inspiring, not intimidating.
