1. Technology must be tied to the curriculum to avoid off task behavior. Technology is not being used as entertainment. It is a means to an end: learning.
2. Students must be held accountable for the technology to preserve the technology. It is the equivalent of the textbook. A book or an Ipad is provided for student use. If it is not handled appropriately, the technology will not be available. Again, students must be made aware that the technology is not a toy; it is a learning device.
3. Museum Box looks like it will be a good site as it is interactive. History Buff allows students to access primary resources for research purposes.
As I am new to technology, this is definitely a work in progress. I am eager to try to implement the Ipad into my curriculum.
