Kindergarteners use iPads

The kindergarteners have been busy using iPads to explore all kinds of subjects. Working both alone and in groups, they’re practicing handwriting, phonics and introductory mathematics using Montessori-based apps, experimenting with counting coins and telling time, designing digital cars, playing a virtual piano, looking at pictures from NASA and trying to stack up the 50 states. iPad work involves tactile and kinetic learning, and gives children a chance to work at their own pace, try new and difficult tasks, make mistakes and figure out how to correct them on their own, and practice solving problems together.
