Teaching with Tech 11.9.11

Our NCCS iPad Pilot is underway! I wanted to give you all an update on the status of the pilot program. The iPads and carts have arrived and are being prepared to place in our pilot classrooms. In addition to the iPad pilot teachers and students, Tech Team members have each been given an iPad to use with their classrooms and to model effective iPad use for the district. Our iPad teachers have been involved in professional development and sharing through monthly meetings. We have developed a wiki to use throughout the year to share resources and collect data related to the project. Teachers participating in the pilot are working to brainstorm a list of apps that are essential for learning in their classrooms. We'll use our NCCS volume purchasing account through iTunes to purchase apps, and teachers will sync the iPads to distribute the apps to students' iPads. The technology department is currently developing policies and procedures related to safe and ethical use of the iPads. On Wednesday, November 16th, all iPad pilot teachers and Tech Team members will come together for a full day of professional development and collaborative planning. I'll have tons of videos and photos to share soon. Stay tuned!
