Community Support for iPads

It is so easy to hand out the technology to kids but without the right support from home, you’ll be fighting a losing battle.

At the beginning of the year we made the decision that we wouldn’t roll the iPads out until Week 4 of the Term. This was largely due to the fact that we wanted to implement a program of Digital Citizenship both for the students and for the parents.

Initially we held a Parent Night which involved our Principal, our lead technician and myself in discussing the major areas the parents were interested in:
Why iPads?
The Technical stuff
The Practicalities – Digital Citizenship

Below are some of the pages from the presentation and some of the links to videos, etc we used on the night.
