Since I'm the fifth grade STEM teacher at my school, it falls on me to be sure students have been taught the school and grade level expectations for technology use. My favorite way to do this is by giving students a reason for learning these rules - so they can use the iPads to create their own interactive image.
On the very first day of school, I introduced myself by sharing an interactive image that I created and uploaded to my school district webpage. Students were chomping at the bit to choose which item to click on so they could learn more about me. I had them at full attention the entire class period. So much better than just standing there and telling them some random details while they dozed off in class. try it out. Simply move your mouse to hover over or touch the tags on the image and read some details about me.
After sharing my interactive image, I casually tell the students they have homework due the next day. This usually startles them since it's the first day of school and no teacher in their right mind would assign homework on the first day of school. Lucky for them, I'm half crazy. HA!
Other than logging in - because they tend to mistype their passwords - things run pretty smoothly. Students work together without me even telling them to. They collaborate and assist each other with taking photos and navigating the app. I spend most of my time trying to memorize their names and faces. It's only the second day of school, after all!
