Today I will visit a 4th grade classroom.  The purpose of these iPad Lesson Classroom Visits is to demonstrate how iPads can enhance lessons or assist with learning skills when integrated into the daily curriculum.  It is also a way to gain data on which iPad apps will be successful with this integration.

Today will be these students 2nd experience with the iPads.  I will again give them an opportunity to work with an assortment of apps to strengthen their skills in using the iPads and help them begin to view the iPad as an academic tool.
