Partipants of TT1 complete a daily activity using the iPad to gather data. The objective of the activity is to gather and compare weather patterns over an extended period of time, as well as among various locations. The Weather Channel App enables users to search for locations around the globe, view forcasts, and interact with various types of maps. Integrating the iPad into daily classroom lessons works to satisfy the goal of incorporating resources beyond the text into the curriculum. Utilizing apps to gather information assists students with finding purposeful ways to apply technology to real life situations.
