K-12 iPad Deployment Checklist « - 2 views

  •  
    "School has started for most of us around the country. Alarm clocks are set, bleary-eyed kids stumble their way to class, and iPads are being handed out. Just a typical day here at Eanes and many districts across the country. As the amount of 1:1 schools and districts continue to grow with many different devices, but specifically the Apple iPad, I thought it might be good to reflect and share the laundry list of items we've prepared in getting ready for our roll-outs. (all high school students, 8th graders, and 2 grade levels at the elementary schools are 1:1 this year) I've already written about 10 things NOT to do in a 1:1 here (the list is growing in year 2) but what about things we SHOULD do?"

I Know My Way Around an iPad - Teachers with Apps - 6 views

  •  
    "Seriously, I know my way around an iPad and have a passion for finding great apps that promote deeper learning but I'm afraid of how this iPad deployment is going to pan out stateside & worldwide. What about all the wonderful teachers that just aren't there yet, as far as mobile technology is concerned? What about others that are scared of change… any kind of change?! If I'm scared, what are they feeling? How will it be for brand new teachers, entering the field in this wake of change?"

Top 10 Things NOT to do in a 1:1 iPad Initiative « - 10 views

  •  
    "Part of the benefit of jumping forward with a 1:1 iPad deployment like we have tried is that we get the opportunity to impart knowledge to other districts looking to do a similar initiative. While that might not seem like a benefit, it actually also means we can make some mistakes because there is not a long history of this type of deployment in the world. "

APPitic - 1,300+ EDUapps - 13 views

    "Almost two years ago to the day, I wrote a post, "The iPad: Why Teachers Should Care." Flash forward to today, both of the schools I work at have purchased one iPad for each classroom. Although I've already mastered how to manage all the iDevices in my personal household, learning to manage iPads in an institutional environment involved a bit more learning due to the complexities of software licensing and the necessity to keep institutional accounts separate from personal ones."

My favorite quotes from visiting Waverly Shell Rock's 1:1 iPad Deployment « W... - 5 views

    "Today I visited the new Waverly Shell Rock Middle School, in Waverly, Iowa. Their school was devastated by flooding back in 2008. With the help from FEMA, state, and local resources, the school reopened in the fall of 2011 as a 5th grade thru 8th grade middle school featuring a 1:1 ipad rollout to all 600 students."

    I'm going to return to my roots as an edtech blogger for a moment and recap this past semester's iPad deployment project, so those of you used to reading my notes about SBG will have to wait for the next post."

    "The Palm Beach County school system has a full review of their deployment process along with photos and commentary. Their incredible wiki features tons of great resources (the best iPad apps for particular grades, how much iPad labs actually cost, etc.) so be sure to check it out. Below is their must-have guide for installing, setting up, and syncing iPads in the classroom:"
