As I was walking around the room, I noticed students catching their mistakes and changing their answers, students asking others about problems they encountered, and students gleaming with success when they completed all of the problems successfully. The students' work was checked by one of their peers who listened to the videos and evaluated their thinking. During this time, I heard students reminding other students to simplify their fractions or to subtract instead of add. My students then added these new videos to their digital math portfolios.
I love the math conversations that are happening in my classroom because of the iPads. My students are becoming more confident in their math skills and they are explaining their learning.
