1:1 iPad Classroom

I am excited to share that we are a 1:1 iPad classroom. This means that each student will be assigned their very own iPad for the school year. We are going to be using these across all subject areas. There are many ways in which we try to use the ipads each day.  Clicking this blurb will take you to Ms. Herman's padlet page which shares more details about ways we use technology.
