Monroe High School Students

Before I left for our Thanksgiving Break one of our teachers sent me this update on what was going on in his classroom with the iPads:

Essentially they’re teaching themselves and each other about membranes with this awesome website called “Just Passing Through.”  The students downloaded a document from our class wiki that would lay out the requirements for their investigation. They then saved it to their digital notebooks which they maintain in GoodReader. One group member is using the MacBooks to navigate the site and research the structure of cell membranes and how it relates to its functions while the other is recording all of their information on their iPad.  Afterwards, each group will be presenting their findings and we will be working towards creating a class model of the cell membrane.
