I feel like before I give a bulleted list of our challenges with this iPad deployment I should give a little background of our situation and district. I teach at one of 15 middle schools for USD259 (Wichita Public Schools) in Wichita, KS. Our student demographics is around 600 students grades 6th - 8th. We are a Title One school that has been struggling with state test scores. USD259 has over 50,000
students enrolled. The Title One office wrote a grant for us. When we arrived at school in August of 2011 we were told we received the grant from the state. There are several components and smart goals with the grant. I am going to focus on the technology piece.
So what equipment did we receive by the end of year 1.
So before all this I was a PC person. NOW I have started to drink the Apple Koolaid/
I am a wife, mother, and tech geek. I have my masters in Technology Instruction and Integration. I have taught and worked with technology for over 2 decades. I currently work as a Instructional Technology Specialist at Wichita Public Schools in the Magnet office. I present at conferences, and SimpleK12 along with consulting.
