This morning, Morah Ravit’s second grade students using Thumbprint, an Apple iPad app, were left with quite an impression! They were able to reinforce their understanding of Hebrew word gender by completing a series of activities within Thumbprint. The students were extremely excited to have instantaneous feedback and the ability to review the material in different ways. Click here to see photos.
|Technology: Making, Tinkering and Innovating|
Students in our Technology elective class, under the guidance of Ms. Simon, have just started designing, building, and inventing amazing objects. For their first project, each student created an electrical circuit with blinking LED lights. Maker space is one of the latest trends in educational technology where students engage in transforming their ideas into actual projects using hardware and software tools. Please click here to view some pictures of student's creations and here to see a video of their first project. The World Maker Faire is being held on September 20 and September 21 at the New York Hall of Science. Please click here to purchase tickets and view additional information.
