Approximately half of CIS’s IGCSE and IB Diploma students completed the iPad survey this year.
Opinions vary widely amongst this group. Parental interaction with this group and their iPad is definitely low.
Most students happily use the iPads daily, but some “wish” to BYOlaptop instead. This is a wish which will not be possible to grant as we are more than likely moving to iTunesU next year. Many have already started to created their iTunesU courses. In August, CIS will have a few more public iTunesU courses for all to access and use. At present, we are the first school in India to be publically providing iTunesU courses. That number is sure to grow, as India got approved for iTunesU only in February 2014.
Most of these students are using iPad2 16GB models with wifi, as that was the recommended purchase when we began the program for students in August 2012. They have been learning with iPads for 1.5 years.
Do you have data from your school and its use of technology? Are you experiencing reluctance from IB students to see the value in an iPad? I would love to hear from you…
Thanks to Survey Monkey for making this data easily to present.
With almost 100 students, students in CIS’s middle school have been learning with iPads for 1 year only. Their iPad journey began in August 2013, with all students and a parent/guardian attending a compulsory iPad BootCamp.
Here is what they have to say after approximately 6 months of using the iPads in their classrooms.
iPads are CIS are student-owned. Each student and their family signs an iPad user agreement.
How do they results compare to your school or your learning environment?
How is your school collecting data on iPad pilots and implementations?
Would love to hear from you…
Parents were emailed.
Parents were invited to provide feedback at our Student Led Conferences.
20% of parents provided feedback on this year’s iPad experience with their child in their home.
Most are happy. Most.
Thanks, Survey Monkey for making the analysis portion of this so easy.
CIS has lots of information to guide us and to help us in our planning of year 3 with iPads- 2014-2015! The journey definitely continues. We evolve.

As we began, our 3rd year of 1:1 Learning with iPads at CIS, Shwa and I, with complete support of the administration structure, created this document as a guideline for documenting iPad use, as a reflection tool, and as a Rubric for refining the way iPads are being used in our secondary school.
Three Steps are outlined.
Add iPad integration to all Course Outlines.
Collaborating and presenting SAMR as a department.
Create a SAMR video reflection of teaching with iPads in your classroom.
All steps will be completed by the end of the month. I can’t wait to see the amazing videos that CIS teachers create. How do you monitor, reflect, and assess 1:1 effectiveness at your school?
This is a very accurate reflection on how the iPad is used in Grade 9 IGCSE Chemistry at Canadian International School Bangalore.
