iPads day 22 – aargh & adaptability

Put the iPad onto our new stand, ready to review our class projects on continents and turned it on. And waited. Waited some more and tried all the buttons. Whether you think you’re all set or not, sometimes *stuff* happens. Or when a battery is dead, sometimes *stuff* don’t happen!
However, errors with tools do not mean an end to learning – as I am fond of saying, Mrs Schkade didn’t let me get out of math just because my pencil broke!
Glitches happen, and I got to model some quick reconfiguration of our setup to be successful. Calmly and without making a big deal about it.
The rest of the day flew by (as so many of them do) with a letter-writing afternoon with about 80% of our students having family members come be write with them – all documented by the built in camera and an initial editing on iMovie on the commute home. After all, once I noticed the battery was low, I made. Point of getting it fully charged for the next user!
