iPads day 1+

Mini journal of integrating technology with education.
Day 0: first iPads arrive – PAC purchased one for each classroom. First evening: creating a ‘common set if apps’ to start classes off with and synching them all.

Obstacle 1: updating all of them to latest operating system.

First Day: teachers trying out different cases; having students try out different cases; while Halloween activities go on, taking photos (photo booth story telling very popular), using it as a ‘settling station’, some working out where the ‘on’ switch was!
Great enthusiasm about using them with our sample projectors: traditional ‘5 meter away’ vs short throw units. Early favorite: hdmi cable connecting to the ultra short throw.

Great first day!!
