Acceptable Use Policy: iPads In The Classroom

Acceptable Use Policy: iPads In The Classroom | School Leaders on iPads & Tablets | Scoop.it

"Chances are, if you’re teaching a group of younger students (elementary or middle school, though high schoolers are certainly not known for being super careful with their devices either), you’re likely concerned about how they’re handling your expensive classroom iPads. There are a ton of “tough” tablet cases out there designed to save your device when it is dropped/banged/slammed/smacked/otherwise injured, but just trying to protect them for when that happens isn’t getting at the root of the problem. Teaching students how to properly handle their devices so that they don’t get broken (or are less likely to, since obviously accidents happen) is a necessary approach (though I’d still recommend padding those iPads to high heaven in whatever case is most appropriate for your classroom needs)."

1:1 iPad Initiative: A Four Year Study & Review

1:1 iPad Initiative: A Four Year Study & Review


Abstract

The Franklin Academy High School implemented a 1:1 iPad deployment a the beginning of the 2010-2011 school year. Over the course of the next two school years, the pilot was expanded to include all grades 9-12 in the high school. This deployment has reached 475 high school students and all teaching staff. Our K-8 program deployed iPads across the grade levels in the form of class sets and mobile carts.

This study targeted our 1:1 deployment at the high school to investigate the impact the device has had on teaching and learning. The survey used to gather the student data was administered in April of 2014. Students included in the survey used the device anywhere from 1 to 4 years. The students use the iPad while at school and home.

Results of the survey hope to shed light on the impact the use of the iPad has had on academic gains as well as the development of the most important non-cognitive skills our program is founded upon.

11 Tips for Managing iPads in the Classroom

11 Tips for Managing iPads in the Classroom | School Leaders on iPads & Tablets | Scoop.it

"I am starting to see the light… and somewhat emerging from the fog of iPad enrollment and technical logistics. After a full weekend of ACL (yes, the TechChef does find time to enjoy in the Austin music scene), I spent half a day with Randolph ISD sharing some timely tips for managing iPads in the classroom. As I am never one to hoard resources and I imagine that there our other teachers and districts that might benefit from some tried and true management techniques, I thought I would crank out a blog to share these with the greater edusphere."

School finds keys to easier iPad deployment

School finds keys to easier iPad deployment | School Leaders on iPads & Tablets | Scoop.it
Many people think of iPads in education as devices that need to be locked down. But at Immaculata-La Salle, we're doing things differently.


Fla. school finds key to easier iPad deployment 
It took a Florida school roughly one month to roll out iPad 3 tablets for students, which Fredy Padovan, education-technology director and technology-integration coach and presenter, said led officials to opt this time for an iPad Air deployment that took just over two hours. The school used the Device Enrollment Program offered by Apple to help enroll and supervise Apple devices. eSchool News (free registration) (10/10)

Los Angeles iPad rollout for schools slowed by technical challenges: report

By Alex Dobuzinskis LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - An ambitious $1.3 billion program to provide an iPad or other device to every Los Angeles public school student has been slowed by technical challenges, with curriculum that was supposed to be built into the technology often incomplete, an independent report has found. The report marked a potential setback for a program that Superintendent John Deasy last year heralded as a civil rights initiative to help his district's largely disadvantaged students,
