Cassidy - Digital Daily Five

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Reading to self, reading to someone, working on words, writing and listening to reading are all important parts of any literacy program. The two sisters have given us a wonderful framework with their Daily Five model. How can iPads make this structure even better? We’ll explore apps, tools and methods that can help you take advantage of this powerful learning tool.
You’ll leave with
• An understanding of ways to use iPads to improve literacy.
• Ideas for ways to make technology use meaningful in your classroom
• A digital handout with all of the information presented.
