We have been working hard using our iPads in kindergarten. We are finding that they are a great for assessment as they allow students to explain their thinking quickly and easily (we are using Explain Everything). We can then look at what they are learning and use this information as a diagnostic, formative, or summative assessment tool.

We found we were just starting, we had no idea who's thinking was recorded on each iPad at the end of the day. We set up a tracking system where students could get their name tags and include them in their picture or recording. This made it much easier for us!
