Welcome Back! Take an index card and find the other 2-3 people that have the same color. Reintroduce yourselves- name, school and position Discuss 1. Define your school year. What are you most excited about? What overwhelms you? 2. ipad Grant – What do you remember about the grant? What questions do you still have? 3. What is the first thing you will do or have already done with the ipad and with students?
Student Surveys 1. Things to do: Review the student data from the September 2010 Surveys. There are very few paper copies (except HS). You do have access on our wiki site - Notice for patterns and trends. 2. Discuss with your colleagues: What do you notice? How will it impact your instruction? Was there anything that surprised you? What is the most important information that you can take away from the data? 3. We will report out soon! (If you would like a closer look at individual student surveys, we can give you access. Please ask. )
Notes: Almost all kids say they use tech. daily (but this particular type?) Surprised how many kids have access to so much Surprised how many students like the subject area (is this because of the ipads?) All but 3 4 th graders use video games Faster and more convenient! iPad is like a big iPhone! Students bring headphones – know how to get music KidBiz access was faster – room was QUIET We are so lucky! Excitement in the air We might need to teach some of the apps
