Watching @KKleinNYC’s 6th graders use iPads to access a shared @Dropbox folder of supplementary resources. #mathchat

I saw a tweet from Katie Hildebrandt (@KKleinNYC) and was inspired to check out what was happening in her 6th grade math classroom. She wrote that today she “realized handouts are a thing of the past” so I was curious what she and her students were specifically doing.

Katie’s 6th graders are currently multiplying decimals. She and her associate teacher are particularly adept at differentiating instruction to the wide range of learners in their classes. Besides our 1:1 laptop program, Katie has a set of iPads available. Katie created a folder of resources and shared this to each device using Dropbox. Now, students have an instant, paperless way to choose from a variety of challenges to meet their needs.
