This is on the Bklyn Diocesan Station showing the work we are doing at the school


We are the only Catholic school, that I know of, in the NY area that is aggressively moving to a One to One computing platform, using the iPad.  The more we move in this area - the more I am sure we are (to use the parlance of the kids) sooooo doing the right thing!

Preparing Your School for an iPad Implementation

Planning is imperative for any technology initiative - iPad or otherwise.
