Since this is the first year for a 1:1 Initiative in the district, each child must have an agreement signed by a parent to use a device in the classroom. The parents will sign these at Open House this year! While it is hard to wait, I will continue to post how we are getting ready for our IPads.
Below is a picture of my classroom after I painted this summer, before everything was ready.
This banner is in the hallway. I ordered this banner on Vista Print. When people walk by, they can scan the QR Codes to see our Facebook page, Twitter page, and classroom blog.
The library area.
My meeting/desk area.
Finally, this is where our IPads will go until our carts come! They will be numbered and stored in these crates. I also have several power strips for charging.
Our first lessons for the year will be all about Digital Citizenship. When the IPads come, then the students will be ready to post on our classroom blog!
