Exploring the use of iPads and mobile devices in education.
Here are some links that may be of use to you. Would love to hear what works best.
I was wondering how your iPad pilot turned out? Was the ipad documented within the IEP?
I work in the Assistive Technology Dept of a large urban school district. We just received our iPads that we purchased for our AT device lending library. Use of this new technology within the context of special education is quite daunting! We are running into logistical & legal issues that are unique to SPED. Unlike your program, our iPads will not be tied to a specific classroom which dramatically adds to these logistical and legal issues. We have been looking around at other districts, but have found that most districts are using ipads within a self-contained classroom rather than tied to an individual student. It seems your pilot program was well planned, with clear outcome expectations and a plan for measuring specified outcomes. We are trying to take some time to develop our policies for the program before school starts. Anyways let me know if you are running into any of these issues.
