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.
