Why, yes! We can have fun while we are learning!

When you begin hearing choruses of "this is fun" during a lesson, you know you are doing something right!  My school received a classroom set of iPads at the beginning of the school year, and my goal was to find ways to incorporate the iPads that would be fun and beneficial to our students' learning process.  We decided to start out with free apps, since there are so many free ones, and we have found many that are wonderful.  One of those apps is called Sock Puppet, and students are able to create a puppet show by selecting their own puppets and backgrounds.  Then, they record their voices, and the app turns it into a cartoonish voice.  The students absolutely love it, and surprisingly, they are very serious about getting their shows just right. 

I had a class of 7th grade Social Studies students come into the library to create their puppet shows.  The teacher was using this as an end of unit review, and the students had to write interviews based on several different conflicts they were studying.  It was simple, fun and educational!  What could be better?

The videos can be uploaded to YouTube or Facebook, neither of which I could do at school.  So I resorted to taking a video of the iPad with my phone.  Sorry for the poor quality, but you will get the idea!
