Welcome to my blog! I'm Karen Belt, a fourth year teacher working at Lynmore Primary School in Rotorua, New Zealand. I'm teaching in a Year 3 class using iPads to engage and motivate learners and improve student achievement. This blog documents my teaching journey and my learning processes with iPads in the classroom. I've proud of having been a member of the inaugural Manaiakalani Digital Teaching Academy(MDTA) program and last year a Spark Manaiakalani Innovative Teacher (MIT) and Manaiakalani Google Class OnAir teacher.

Sharing my experiences

It's always great to get opportunities to share my experiences and what exciting things I have happening in Room 19 with my learners using 1:1 iPads.  One such opportunity happened today with a group of visitors to Manaiakalani.    My Google Presentation touched briefly on some of the ways we use the iPad in Reading, Writing and Maths and I linked to examples that I have blogged about in the past.

  2. The EE examples are my favourite part of your sharing along with the honest commentary of how they work and what you learnt from them.
