The kindergarten students in D13 are using Asus Memo tablets. We have tried apps, explored google classroom, and even had 5th grade tech buddies problem solve with us.
This week in kindergarten we did an awesome lesson with our tablets and digital photography. Miss Eirinberg and I started the lesson with a digital citizenship discussion on how to ask someone’s permission before taking a photo. The students were then given a grid of items to find in the classroom and photograph. We discussed how to focus and take the picture. We heard great discussions on how to find things in the room to photograph. The students also were respectful and asked before taking pictures of each other. Several students chose to continue photographing things in the room and sounding out those objects on the back of the paper.
Watching the kindergarteners communicate with each other and collaborate on the lesson was exciting for us both! Thanks to our kindergarteners for jumping in and being respectful digital citizens!
