Students are using the Reflector app to share drawings made on the iPad to the whole group. With group feedback students are able to add details to their human figure while naming body parts, and developing a deeper understanding of how technology provide us with opportunities to share our learning.
They have also been practicing shapes and color on some of the applications in the iPad.
