Maths apps and BYOD vs paper dominoes

Three of the students from the E3 maths group have downloaded the Penguin Jump Maths Free Game onto their own phones and I have observed them using this in class, competing with each other, while they wait for me to start class! This is a great app because it covers all the four basic rules, the students can pick what they want to practice and they get to complete a race on the iPad and then keep track of the time it takes to do the game and compete with others in this way.

In one session I gave them an option to practice by playing a paper dominoes game or by playing maths games on the iPads and the whole class chose to use the iPads over the paper activity.
