I have taken a sixth month hiatus from blogging and it's time to get back in the swing of things. It's crazy how much has taken place in the last six months!
iPad research, EduCon in Philadelphia, Learning and the Brain Conference in San Francisco along with a visit to the "Mother Ship" in Cupertino, MacBook rollout to teachers and staff in the Lower School, deciding to go 1:1 iPads in grades JK thru 2, connecting with Fraser Speirs, changing our decision about iPads...(decided to go all out and now we will be 1:1 JK thru 4), applied for and awarded a grant to visit Cedars School of Excellence (more on that later), ordering and receiving 400 iPads, getting my new iPad2, 1 1/2 hour conference call with Apple about how to set up Volume Purchase Program, and two 3hour meeting sessions to set up VPP and other logistical stuff for teacher iPad rollout....WHEW, all this in addition to day to day teaching responsibilities! It's no wonder why I haven't been blogging!
Well, things are going to change...as we approach the rollout of our 1:1 iPad program I am going to document the journey. So many exciting things are going to be happening at school and I want to share with you all. So... hang on and get ready for an amazing time ahead as we embark on our iPad Journey!
