Beyond Fun and Games: Using an iPad as a Tool for Critical Response
Wood, Summer; Jocius, Robin
Reading Teacher, v68 n2 p129-133 Oct 2014
It is no secret that technology is ever evolving and impacting the ways in which we engage in society. This reality is also true when considering how young children express knowledge. In this article we discuss the ways in which three iPad applications were used for critical responses to children's literature. We highlight the ways in which two elementary Black male students used these digital tools to respond critically to issues of power and equity presented in the children's literature used in the tutoring program in which they were taking part.
