Visible Wellbeing in the iPad Classroom

Our Reception and Year 1 classes are just about to get iPad for the very first time- actually the first time that the College has implemented any type of Apple Technology. Teachers are starting to explore what this means for their classrooms and how the technology is going to complement and enhance their practice. For me, that means introducing them to simple but effective workflows that bring immediate benefits.

With teachers across the College also participating in Professional Learning in the Visible Wellbeing space, it was a timely opportunity to introduce how Apple Classroom can be combined with Keynote for quick and effective feedback from learners.

I made and shared a Keynote slide deck with large emojis to represent different feelings, and shared it to the teachers in a Professional Learning session. I asked them to select the slide that best represented how they were feeling about putting iPads into their classrooms which caused a few laughs, but also gave them a resource that they are able to implement with ease back in their classrooms, and an immediate understanding of the potential for using Apple Classroom as a powerful formative feedback tool.

Feel free to download, add to or use the Keynote deck as is!

This is great! I love the simplicity of using emojis here and your method of modeling what the teachers you were coaching would be able to do with this Keynote in their own classrooms. 👏
