School year winding down...

The school year is winding down... 2 more weeks to go. What to do with our current iPads, and what to do with our incoming iPads? We will have the tech team reimage the old ones according to grade levels, and image the incoming new ones for their specific grade levels as well. We are excited to see how the 1:1 program will work as it trickles down to the lower grades (we will be 1:1 in PS, 1, and 2 next year) Exciting times! Check back to see how we are doing!

New iPad Minis arrive!

We have just received 45 iPad Minis for our upper elementary grades. We will divide them up so grade 4 and 5 will each have a class set to use. It will be interesting to see how they are used and how everyone responds to them. There is already quite a bit of interest in them which may mean we have a dilemma on our hands... Do we stick with our 1:1 old laptop program (which has its share of pros and cons) and just use iPads as needed? Or do we scrap the laptop program and focus on developing 1:1 iPads in the upper grades as we have done in the lower elementary? We will have to wait and see!
