The first students to dust off the iPads from summer storage were our 5th graders. With a new start to the year, the 5th grade teachers invited me into each 5th grade classroom to set expectations, sign contracts and build our iCommunity. Using an interactive Nearpod lesson, I worked with students to share tips, tricks and expectations for using technology at Eanes. I'm looking forward to our iPad adventures this year!
Building an iCommunity
Here comes the iPad Wagon!
This year's iPads are literally rolling out! Eanes Elementary is the oldest and most unique campus in the Eanes Independent School District and I am so thrilled to be the Ed Tech this year. I joined the EE team after Debbie Smith, Ed Tech extraordinaire, retired to take on the most important role ever, a devoted grandmother. I hope to continue her legacy of teaching with compassion, kindness and patience. Take a look at all her amazing work at EE on her blog: The Mustang Blog. To learn more about projects and tech happenings at my previous school, Bridge Point Elementary, check out The Bobcat Blog.
Eanes Elementary is spread out over a beautiful multi tiered hillside consisting of more than 16 separate buildings, quite a challenge for an iPad rollout! Luckily, with the help of a little red wagon and lots of determined and dedicated teachers, we were able to roll out over 700 iPads to our Pre-K to 5th graders! Let the learning begin!
