  19. Student comments When you get stuck on a problem, how’s the iPad different from a book? “With a book, I would just skip it, and wait to figure out what’s happening in class for Ms. Mitchell to explain. But now I can go back and look at examples. It’s actually more fun than a book. A book’s kind of boring.” - Kate “I watch the videos. They help me understand a little more. They give you step-by-step instructions. Sometimes I don’t understand the step-by-step the teacher gives me, but I watch the videos over and over again and I can get it. Plus it’s a lot lighter than a math book.” - Kyle

  20. Administrator comment “Participating in the HMH Fuse: Algebra 1 pilot has been very exciting and rewarding…our students are reporting that the HMH app is a great tool that far surpasses traditional textbook learning. One of our primary goals as educators is for students to be engaged and joyful learners - this app really makes that possible. It’s simply remarkable.” Richard Carranza Deputy Superintendent San Francisco Unified School District

  21. Administrator comment “We’re focused on students and making sure they have 21st century technology, we shouldn’t be asking them to power down when they come into the school building.” “Our students deserve to be successful. If it takes this technology to get them engaged, we’re going to try it.” Jhone Ebert Chief Technology Officer Clark County School District http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2011/sep/14/turnabout-teachers-give-students-apples-hope-ipads/
