iPads day 3

Day 3 = the end of the week. It also marked the end of the first round of ‘anxious moments’.
My early learning intentions for the adults were that:
A) they would get frustrated
B) they would play and explore

Early frustration included ‘how to connect to wifi at home’. Solved.

Early playing included solitaire and other apps – scribblenauts was a hit. I’m waiting for someone to explore minecraft!

New exploring includes ripple wanting to explore the App Store to see how they might have the students in the classroom start using them.

Next week we are going to start testing out two different projectors – one traditional needing to be in the Center of the room; the second the more expensive ‘ultra short throw’ that can be right up to the wall.

I’ve set up a couple of Pages documents to help me record the feedback loops – need to figure out a way to easily incorporate photos into a table (or something like that).

Looking forward to our staff meeting next week to share our ‘research’ and plan our ‘next steps’ as a staff – feeling like a ‘great first step to adding technology to our education’ or as I call it: TECHNOLOGIZATION

    Have them try to take a picture or a screen shot and label it with an app called “Skitch”. http://www.skitch.com/ So easy for kids (and older folks) to do. Oodles of fantastic ways to use it. We took a screen schot of a map and labelled it, it’s great for explaing things in science experiements and virtually anything else too!
