If they want to keep their “sushi monster” happy, children need to know their math facts.
Ridgewood High School students in French 5 Advanced Placement work on their laptops and iPads.
“Sushi Monster,” a free iPad game produced by Scholastic, is just one of several games that Willard School teachers are using in their classrooms as part of the school’s initiative to integrate technology into the classroom in a fun way.
This year, the district has taken a heightened interest in improving its professional technology savvy and integrating technology into all curricular areas. The success of iPad usage at Willard and other schools is giving the district extra impetus to keep forging forward with a variety of technology goals planned for the future.
