When bringing tablets into the classroom, some technical issues are inevitable. They’re bound to happen, so how can teachers deal with these issues while still keeping the learning environment positive and productive? At Pathways Middle School in Meridian, Idaho, teachers share how they’ve adapted to using tablets in the classroom and their strategies for handling technical problems. These moments can become a learning experience for students–while the teacher is providing one on one support to an individual student, the rest of the class can work together to continue the lesson. Of course, student tech teams are also a huge help when problems arise–tech squad to the rescue!
