Mounds View Public Schools prepare nursery pupils for success with Android tablets

We're giving students power and choices when we let them learn on their own. It not only helps us meet everyone's needs individually, but it makes learning fun.

Lynn Erickson, Kindergarten Teacher, Mounds View Public Schools

Challenge

As the district prepared to introduce all-day kindergarten, teachers and administrators sought ways to take advantage of more classroom time and to personalise learning for students.

Solution

Mounds View teachers use Android tablets and apps from Google Play for Education to help children work independently and guide themselves through maths and reading lessons. Students get creative with tablets, recording themselves reading or showing off good behaviour skills.
