PD, in the traditional sense, will be offered in the coming weeks on LearnPad. It pleases me to be providing grade levels with a larger chunk of time devoted entirely to LearnPad, Class Connect Portal, and creating meaningful content for your students. This time will afford us the opportunity to dig deeper into the LearnPad solution, share recommended resources, and plan ahead using Power Standards as our road map.
The LearnPad solution was selected by Hastings Public Schools because it is a student-centered learning device. As the teacher, we control every aspect of the content contained on the device. This leads to a more focused, purposeful, and educationally sound tech experience. It is in this way that LearnPads offer greater differentiation for our students in a safer learning environment.
iPads are still a valuable teaching tool. One is being provide to each classroom as a teacher tech tool. A resource that, when used correctly, can free you from your desk and allow access to the largest collections of apps on the planet
