Integrating Math and Technology in Kindergarten
Abbe Roth

Integration is a central component of Chicago Jewish Day School's curriculum. Integrated learning is when children broadly explore knowledge across various subjects as they relate to a certain theme. Kindergarten students are using the app, Seesaw, to document and share the learning they do in class with each other. Through technology, students can enhance their understanding of basic addition with the opportunity to visually demonstrate and explain their thinking to their peers. This activity not only improves students' understanding of math and technology, but also empowers them to apply critical and creative thinking skills that elevate their learning. This holistic approach reflects the interactive nature of the real world and promotes lifelong learning.
