Reflections from an Elementary School Principal: We're Going 1:1 with iPads!!!

Reflections from an Elementary School Principal: We're Going 1:1 with iPads!!! | ed tech | Scoop.it

"Can you hear my excitement already? You read that right...we are going 1:1 with iPads in all of our preschool through 5th grade classrooms in our elementary school.

Since I have learned from so many other blogs about integrating technology I plan to share our learning here, but also hope to get input from others on questions that we have.

Here's what led up to this 1:1 decision:"

Dit zou grote schooltassen schelen, maar als ik naar mijn eigen e-reaer kijk... Waar blijven de mooie plaatjes en de glanzende nieuwe blaadjes aan het begin van het nieuwe schooljaar? Die nieuwe boeken waaruit blijkt dat je weer aan het begin staat van een nieuw avontuur, waarin je vooraan kan lezen wie voor jou het boek heeft gebruikt en je kunt voorstellen dat velen voor jou dit boek hebben doorgeworsteld. Ik weet niet of dit mijn onverdeelde voorkeur heeft, maar het is zeker een stap in de richting van modernisering.

Dr Pam Hill's curator insight, July 25, 2013 8:53 AM

Hmmm.  Wonder if this would work for PD?

Our library is beginning to use this to manage our Kindles that check out to students and faculty.

The "Kid Blog' is a safe and effective way to allow your students to keep up to date blogs in a secure evironment. With these blogs students can not only post their own blogs, but oarticipate in discussions.

I feel this is a gerat resourse to use within the classroom, as students and teachers can keep track of students posts and especially look at their progress throughout the year.

Xyleme Alex's curator insight, August 7, 2013 4:58 PM

Looks like a great tool and it's entirely free. I like that it is based on the Wordpress platform, but removes the clutter and distractions that other blogging services have.

Reflections from an Elementary School Principal: How to Support My Teachers with our 1:1 Initiative?

Reflections from an Elementary School Principal: How to Support My Teachers with our 1:1 Initiative? | ed tech | Scoop.it

"In my last post I shared that we are going 1:1 with iPads in all of our preschool through 5th grade classrooms in our building. Now, my question is how can I lead/support my teachers to use them in meaningful ways to transform learning? We are fortunate to have an Instructional Media Specialist that is extremely helpful in supporting teachers to try a new tool. We also will be investing in training from Certified Apple Trainers. But what can I do? "
