Brainstorming With 3rd Graders

Amy Kenyon, a 3rd grade elementary school teacher, has a great post on using a Tablet PC to brainstorm ideas with 3rd graders:

I was afraid that the technology would distract them from getting into the writing activity, but they had the same great ideas they would have had if I had written them on the board instead. Now I would be able to catalog their ideas in ways I couldn’t before.


But, to be perfectly honest, the best part was how excited the kids were about doing it this way. And who can blame them? Thank you to my school for getting me this great teaching toy . . . OOPS . . . I mean teaching tool.
