iPad initiative at the Linsly School
During the 2010 – 2011 school year, 20 iPads were given to the faculty through a variety of different sources of funding (grants, the LPA, etc). We chose the iPad2 16GB wifi only model for our faculty as most of our storage was going to be through cloud services like Google Apps for Education and DropBox.
Faculty got to play with their new devices. A few inservices were scheduled to collaborate on various tools the faculty have found and to discuss ways to use the iPads in the classroom. Two scenarios were the focus: The first being a teacher with the iPad and the students using the mobile laptop labs and the second being the teacher with an iPad and their class also having iPads.
