How I Use It
I created a rotation type game where my students took turns holding an ipad. I set a timer for 5 minutes and after the time was up the student would pass the ipad to the next student. While not playing, the other students would go to a different center. It's very flexible and keeps the kids both motivated and on task.
My Take
This teaching tool is a great way for 3rd and 4th grade students, with multiple disabilities, to keep occupied while learning. I like the variation that it offers. I only wish I had more than one ipad in the resource room. If anything, it should be a bit easier for a student to get to an end point; however, for my students it doesn't seem to matter much.
