Pius XII Early Learning Students Loving New iPads

Shaylisah Dixon enjoys an interactive literacy game focused on letter/sound recognition and spelling.

March 23, 2011 - With the recent addition of ipad centres in the ELK classrooms at Pius XII school, many students are opting for time with technology during play! The kindergarten classrooms received 4 ipads each loaded with interactive games focused on the development of students' fine motor, literacy and numeracy skills. The classroom teachers and early childhood educators also each received an ipad to help facilitate the documentation of student learning. A welcomed tool to help in the recording and organization of student observations! "We are fortunate to be at a school in a board that recognizes the importance of introducing technology to students at an early age. The ipads provide the ideal environment for a 21st century learner!" explained classroom teacher, Camille Heaton. "Almost all of my students got the ipad in hand and began navigating it and its application with ease." she added.
