I am excited to join this community and learning how more people use these type of devices within their classrooms. My district just recently purchased 20 iPads for use throughout our building. For us, a K-8 building with only 8 to 15 students per grade and 84 total student population, this is a great chance to use something other than a text book, because in theory every student can have one right in front of them during the entire class. I, being the "techie" of the group, decided to really pursue them being used. That led me to this site and to Mr. Meech.
I would love to hear from anyone who uses the iPod or iPad technology in their classroom. At this time, we have three of thirteen teachers using them on a weekly basis in their classroom. Not bad for us, but I want to see more. I look forward to posting more about our experience here and learning from everyone within this community.
