Tech Time: iPads & Common Core

Have you visited our Blogs page yet? We organized the blogs we follow into 3 categories: Kinder Blogs, Art Blogs & Technology Blogs. Digital Kindergarten is one of the technology blogs we follow with ideas on how to incorporate technology into the classroom.

One of their posts focuses on Meeting the Common Core State Standards using the iPad through apps in Language Arts in the area of "key ideas and details". One of the apps they recommend is Toontastic. "FREE, allows children to create their own story and even publish to YouTube (not required).  It includes learning about elements of stories- including the effect music has.  Children pick from or make their own settings and characters.  Absolutely terrific for RL.K.3!" We are planning on introducing this to the kids this week. The kids are going to love it!
