Here are my thoughts from this session on using one iPad in a classroom.
Ground Rules for use:
very clear on how to be (behaviors) and where to go on the iPad (apps to use
No warnings, lose iPad privileges for a short time (suspension)
Prep for use
Do it yourself first.
Create a guide sheet.
You can also let a student pilot an app and become the “resident expert”
