Learning the Importance of Credible Research

Class learning on iPads

Fourth graders at Alton Darby have been using their iPads to do research and find credible sources of information. Technology teacher, Betsy Barger, is working with students in Mrs. Brooke Bolyard’s room and all the fourth-grade classrooms. They are learning how to utilize their iPads as a resource for improving their understanding of a topic. This is part of learning how to do research for writing and class projects

Students use technology daily and to prepare them to be Ready for Tomorrow they need to learn to use it thoughtfully to enhance their reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language use. They are taught to tailor their searches online to acquire useful information efficiently and then integrate what they learn using technology with what they learn offline.
