How hard could this be?

Once reality set in..Setting up the iPadsCreate an ITunes accountEach iPad must be added to account. This in itself is a small chore, especially when it is time to update. There are carts that can make this job easier.Find appsUpdate appsDecide on storageCheck signal strength (IMPORTANT!!!)

Management of iPadsAssign each student an iPad they will use everydayTeach students how to respect the equipment (cleaning it, holding and carrying it)Introduce app one at a time and allow time for practiceSet up generic student e-mailsSet up numbered backgrounds, individual for each student using Decide on procedures to get Ipads in and out everyday

Dont spend too much time hunting for content apps that fit what you always have done. Instead, think of new ways of teaching while utilizing the Ipads.

How do I get them out and put them back?4. How do I get apps?5. How do I keep them powered up?6. How do I make sure nothing BAD is done with them?

Set Goals! Think about.-Increasing differentiation- efficient assessment- Increasing student access to teachers

Plan your classroom pedagogy and instruction around the goals.

Allow for student creation!

Instead of worksheets being replaces by games, have students create their own math videos, post to blogs, or create challenge based projects.Students can create and deliver presentations. (Keynote)
