Term 1 with iPads is finished!

20121125-171146.jpg

Students in Grade 8-11 have had the iPad experience enriching their learning for the past 14 weeks.
Primary uses observed.
1. Collecting data- taking photos of school events, recording notes, and organizing and prioritizing workloads.
2. Web based research- at your finger tips answers.
3. Dropbox and Edmodo are included in most every teacher’s workflow.

Since August, students have been guided to preserve bandwidth by turning of notifications, and by limiting their access to YouTube and Downloading of Apps. CIS has recently doubled its bandwidth capacity, so we look forward to speedier connections and greater use of Socrative, Nearpod, and subject specific apps.

To filter, To not filter, how much to filter…..
This is the daily question at CIS! Preserving bandwidth is important. Keeping kids safe is important. Using all of the learning experiences of the Internet is important. How much are you Filtering at your school? Which filter do you think is best? Why?
