At our last staff development day we spent the afternoon discussing ways to incorporate all of the new “tools” in the building. There are NOOK tablets, NEXUS tablets, iPads, iPad minis, & iTouches. Through grants & what we as a campus have added you guys are becoming techmazing! (Shout out to Tammy for attempting to get them all connected yesterday!)
We paused on our app purchases, not to make your lives more difficult, 🙂 but because with all the different options and opportunities, I really wanted to focus in on how to make all your “devices” could be productive and not just consumptive. Apps are easy, and I’m not saying that they aren’t amazing…but the power that you can put into student’s hands is only limited by your expectations.
Let them loose!
