Technology for Little Learners

Allowing our youngest learners access to technology is so important in today's classrooms. These students are digital natives, and many are using tablets and other devices each day in their homes. Teaching them how to use these devices as tools to create, make and do (rather than just play and watch) can be important part of their day. I loved providing my kindergartners with access to iPads as a way to document their learning, take pictures of their creations, and share their voices as they told me stories or read books aloud. Publishing this work to an authentic audience and sharing with parents was a beloved and essential part of our routine in kindergarten.

Teachers often ask me what some of my favorite apps to use with young learners (K-2) are. Here is a list of my Top 5 Favorites. You can see a more extensive list in this Participate Learning Collection.

Using Fill in the Blank on Classkick

Classkick is one of my favorite tools to use in the classroom - if you haven't tried it, be sure to visit to check it out. Classkick is FREE, and can be used on computers, Chromebooks or iPads. It's such a terrific way to send multiple-page assignments to students, allowing them to respond with text, audio, drawing, photos and video. And HUGE BONUS: teachers can watch their students complete work and provide feedback in real time!
