  1. Hi Susan,
    Thanks for this video! It will be very helpful to parents and teachers new to using iPads. We are setting up three pilot classrooms with 1:1 iPads this year! Do you have that at your school? Any suggestions on implementation and organization?

    1. Hi Maude,
      Congratulations on your upcoming 1:1 iPad pilot! We have 40 iPads on 2 carts at our upper school (grades 7-12). At our lower school, we have 27 ipads on a cart and 1 per classroom.
      Here are some great resources to help you with your program:
      1. On twitter – Follow the #mlearning, #ipaded, #edapp hashtags. @SNewco always tweets great information about iPads and other mobile devices in education. I frequently share iPad related information as well, you can follow me as @s_bearden.
      2. Check out our school Pinterest page at http://www.pinterest.com/HTEA for curated boards of educational iPad apps by grade level (PreSchool-6) – recommended by our lower school teachers.
