First, let me say that I do not mind and I completely understand.
I'll bet I am asked at least half a dozen times a day, "When are the iPads coming?"
(Insert Wayne's World flash back sequence)
Last year we rolled out LearnPads with a bang - like, bang, here's you crate of LearnPads. It did not go over well. The start of the year is so busy as routines, expectations, and curriculum is launched and established. Lesson learned.
This year the goal was to be far more purposeful. With iPads in the classroom, and the lessons of last year, I wanted to be far more deliberate with how we roll out our new tech. That said, when our iPads arrived in late August, they need to be set-up and updated to the newest operating system. This requires Larry to physically touch and update each individual iPad. This is a tedious and laborious task, but when he is not troubleshooting other aspects of our technology, he is pressing forward.
Once your iPads sets are set-up and ready, I will deliver iPads to classrooms. I will also give teachers a quick how-to . On top of that, I will send you a short-ish video that explains everything still further.
Thank you for your patience. We want to do this correctly and then we can do amazing things with and for our students.
