Have you been thinking about implementing iPads in your school or district? Are you unsure of how to begin and what the potential pitfalls might be? In this webinar, we will walk you through the implementation process of PS 10, a New York City public school, that rolled out iPads to all instructional staff members, as well as a mobile cart for student use during the 2010-2011 school year. We will cover the overall plan and purpose, the logistics of getting iPads into the hands of 50 teachers, the plan and timeline for training and ongoing professional development, the systems in place for technical support, and an eye toward the future & scalability.

If you are considering the investment in iPads in your school or district, this webinar will provide an inside view on how one school has taken on the task head-on and hasn't looked back.

You will walk away from this webinar with:

Some best-practice ideas for implementing wide-spread iPad usage at your school or district.
Some set-up and protocol suggestions and ideas.
An indication of the logistics, timing, and workflow needed to get iPads into the hands of teachers.
A possible plan and timeline for training and professional development.
Some suggestions for technical support and future scalability.
