And So it Goes.

Posted: April 21, 2012 in Thought Fulls.

I am incredibly proud of what our iPad classrooms are doing and working towards and exploding into. Now next year we will be so lucky because our budget allows us to purchase 4 more carts, meaning we will have a 7 1:1 classrooms. (so yay!) But in order for our teachers to receive these classrooms, they must apply. Now I couldn’t stomach something like “What would you be a good candidate for an iPad classroom?”

See what I came up with below.

Criteria:
1. Have an Working Website.
2. Chose one lesson they hated teaching this year and rewrite it as if they were teaching it in a 1:1 classroom. 3. Chose one lesson they loved teaching this year and rewrite it as if they were teaching it in a 1:1 classroom.
4. Agree to 10 hours of working PD with me over the summer to prepare for an year of grooviness with iPads.
5. Participate in a private, reflection shared between the iPad classroom teachers.
6. Meet for a celebratory dinner before June 15.

The reasoning behind this application is that teacher who “win” will have already planned at least two of their lessons and more will be planned as we work together over the summer.

Off to the Races!
