Play and Learn in the Tech Sandbox

Let's review

We will call our tools devices.
Where are they?
How did you find them?
Where will you find them tomorrow?

Let's talk about Digital Citizenship

Respect yourself.
Respect others.
Only use your stuff.
Only Señor McCright may add apps to the iPads.

-Penguin Math
-Google Maps:  find your house, your school, New York City
-Khan Academy:  practice your Math
-Duolinguo:  learn a language
