ICT ROLE IN ASSESSMENT -General observation regarding who was at ease working on tablets and who had difficulty First showed students how to turn on and off the tablets properly, where to locate the volume, and let them practice Next, showed students were the app icon was located to find istorybooks, and touchy books Discussed rules for how to use the tablets respectfully, and since 2 students were sharing a tablet, we discussed taking turns when choosing books Finally, browsed through the selection of books with students, and then let them choose their own book to read/listen to/watch with a classmate After using the tablets for reading, students were asked they type of books they would like to read on the tablets, so that more books could be purchased for future use. PRIMARY DATA THAT WAS CREATED + LICENSED + SHARED -none REFLECTIONS ON ICT AS A FUTURE LEARNING TOOL -Students enjoy reading books on the tablets. I will continue to use tablets during reading time as a part of my Daily 5/Café set up for Language Arts. It will be one of the 3 options at reading time, read to self, read with a friend, listen to reading (listen and watch on tablets). - The interactive elements of Touchy Books, was very appealing to students. - Future plans: Request that parents send in a pair of ear buds for each student so there is not conflicting noise from each tablet during reading time. Also, purchase splitters for the ear buds so that two students can share a tablet and still have their own ear buds.
