Seven years ago when I first had my iPad, I got hooked into it. As a teacher, I became interested on the apps that can help me plan my lessons. After two years, I began introducing iPads apps to my students. I actually got my Apple TV and used it in class but then my school got us SEEWOO in 2015 so I stopped using for a year. I started using it again with my students as I asked them to store the electronic copy of their textbook to their iPads. I don't let them use their phones(too much distraction) or computers (too bulky and expensive). For two years I've been trying to come up a presentation for the stakeholders to consider every Grade 10s to have an iPad as an educational tool for Math and other courses. I had been very busy with overtime and my Master's that the plan halted. But now, I have it going. The first thing I have to do is communicate with someone from Apple Company. I wrote an email and to my surprise, somebody emailed me back. I was so happy. It gives me a joy and energy to push through my plan. My plan - every Grade 10s will get an iPad as they enter our program and will be using it as an electronic tool for textbooks, novels,simulations, calculations, and among other things that our Chinese students can greatly benefit from it. I'm so looking forward to make this one a reality. Fingers crossed.
Well, it's about time to write more about my teaching ideas. Graduation is over, I have fewer classes this school year, and I'm back on writing mood for good.
I'll use this page to write my thoughts instead using Blogger since I'm not eye-ing for fame and followers but of recording my own thoughts about teaching and how to do it better and more effective.
I'm thinking of writing a lot about project-based learning in Math classes and how to manage it efficiently. Maybe I'll post as well templates and sample resources for other teachers to try or innovate.
For now, I'll have to start drafting that topic LOL
