    ITAC Device Evaluation

    • Introduction

      As we think about devices and functionality for teaching and learning, it would be useful to explore potential uses. The following scenarios are built to simulate common classroom activities across the content standards. The theme for all of these activities is the concept of Immigration.

      As you work through these tasks, think about how these would play out in our district both from a teacher and a student perspective. At the end of each scenario, you'll be given an opportunity to share your thoughts.  Also, feel free to post comments and questions while you're exploring to the forum below.

      After you've completed all the tasks, you'll be asked to complete an evaluation for both devices. We'll discuss your experiences during our following ITAC meeting.
