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.
