iPads at Burley: Back to the Beginning - 6 views

  •  
    "Even though it's October it still feels very much like the beginning of the year. One of the first thoughts that many teachers have about their students is "they look so little!" It's true. Those tall confident students that left us have gone on to be "little" to next year's teacher and we have our own new crop of "little" people to educate. This becomes even more pronounced in a technology classroom. Everything takes longer, typing, starting, opening, finding, searching. Whatever it is they need time to figure it out. Patience is key. So what can we do?"

Digital Roadtrip * Unique method for accessing student work on iPads? - 16 views

  •  
    "There is an awful lot of hot air blown about accessing student work from "class sets" of iPads, via email, WebDAV, Dropbox etc etc. A little known and cool method is this… We all know that we can share via iTunes over USB to any Mac/PC with a recent version of iTunes.

    Well would you believe the same thing works without a cable and it doesn't have to be the Mac/PC that manages the devices. It means that any teacher can access all the students files on a device that has been "Saved to iTunes". You can even pick up the work, mark it and hand it back to the iPad whilst the iPad is still being used by the kids (unbeknown to the user!)."

    "Over the last few days I've been working with my school's technician to rollout 30 iPads; 10 for staff and 20 for pupils. We'd both never done this before, and didn't really know what we'd find along the way. But we finished today, and I wanted to share the process we went through."

What a million dollar iSchool looks like | Cult of Mac - 4 views

  •  
    "Cult of Mac wanted to know how those iPads get into schools - which ones want them, how they get paid for, what schools are doing with them - so we caught up with Brayden Wardrop. Wardrop is a CTO for Utah-based company called iSchool (yeah, iKnow!), currently getting those tablet computers to schools in Texas, Colorado, Utah, Minesota and Nevada.

    Wardrop manages around 500 iPad2s, 50 Macbook Pros and 75 iMacs for Colorado school Legacy Academy, the kind of deployment that costs around a million dollars "for a total technology overhaul.""
