Central Plains school board receives IPad update

POSTED: March 16, 2012 7:00 a.m.

 Members of the Central Plains USD 112 board of education received a hands-on demonstration of how iPads are being used to teach students during Monday’s board meeting at Central Plains Elementary School in Holyrood.
“We use it to reinforce what we are learning,” said Shae Sheehy, second grade teacher.
Sheehy has used iPad apps to teach students about money, spelling, math, and Kansas history. The students also use the cutting-edge technology to read aloud.
“The kids are always going to the creativity apps,” she said. “They think these are really fun.”
Sheehy said she uses the iPads to tailor her lesson plan for the day.
“Every class in the building has had them,” she said.
