Check out this article by Cristina DeCarbo who was a guest writer on Corkboard Connections. She shares three great apps to use with Upper Primary students. I’ve tried them out myself and can’t wait for the opportunity to use them in a class.

I had a great afternoon with cousins yesterday. A nice family BBQ. Inevitably, the conversation turned to school, and as I’m doing 2 IT based study units, to computers. One cousin has 3 children. They’re not high income, but they’re not on welfare or any other government support. The 3 children attend a Queensland government school.
Enough background. The issue is that this year they were told that each child must have their own iPad to continue their education at that school. That’s around $3000 AUD altogether. A lot of money for most families, let alone those with low incomes.
What’s your story? Have you or anyone you know been ‘forced’ to buy technology for their child’s education? How is this a fair requirement in a public school?

I just stumbled across this article and it seems to be something that just fits into my study and the course I’m doing this semester. It gives some great examples and I’m sure that I will find many of them useful. Let me know if you agree.
