Just back from The iPad Summit in New Delhi!

I went with our entire grade 2 faculty and our librarian and tech director. It was a great conference with excellent workshops and seminars on everything from management to using apps. Thanks to the American Embassy School of New Delhi for putting it on and hosting. Well done. Here is the link to the site.

Great site on a Grade 1 experience going 1:1 iPads


My scoop.it curation site on iPads


On our way!

It has been a while, but after a lot of amazing changes, we are back and already into a new and exciting year! This year we have gone 1:1 iPads in grade 2 (about 100 devices). The iPads stay at school, and live in the grade 2 classrooms. Teachers are already using them to record and show student learning in a variety of ways. We are hoping to start some digital creations with them soon!
