D-53 considers using iPads starting in kindergarten
OAK BROOK – Butler School District 53 heard a report on the planned utilization of iPads in kindergarten though third grade classrooms during a school board meeting this month.
The iPads would be used, for example, to introduce and reinforce phonemic awareness and to help intervene with students falling behind in kindergarten; for literacy and math skill building in grades one and two; and to create content through movie making, story books and QR codes in grade three.
Co-technology directors Barbara Rebecca and Steve Ryan presented information June 10 on how iPads are used in neighboring schools, how the devices would be selected and managed and how teachers would be trained and the program assessed.
