Tool 9

1. Why do you think it is important to tie the technology to the objective?  Students are growing up in the world of technology. They should be provided variety of resources to be self sufficient.

2.Why should we hold students accountable for the stations/centers? 

Students are, ultimately, accountable for their own education. That is important to teach students how to learn than the value of any single fact or idea. It is also important to show students how to value their resources - their planet, their water, their homes, their possessions, their tools. 

 3.  Visit 2 of the applicable links to interactive websites for your content/grade level. Which sites did you like?  How could you use them as stations? How can you hold the students accountable for their time in these stations?

I  really like Learning Games for Kids.   The virtual dissections are a much cheaper option and a good alternative for students .   
I plan on using my iPads & Netbooks for data collection, having students create video tutorials, making timelines, doing research and creating presentations.  

Science360 (various videos and articles relating to science)

4. What do you see that station looking like? How can you hold the students accountable for their time in these stations?
I see my students using iPADs to take pictures and videos of their work, look up needed reference info as and when needed. They are looking at Google Maps satellite images with wikipedia references on an accompanying netbook, researching projects.

5. What about other ways to use the iPod Touch/iPad? Share another way you can see your students using the device as a station.
