Requirements for iPad2 Recipients
1. Attend initial overview and training at one of two offered training dates.
2. Attend one spring user-group meeting (after school).
3. Participate regularly in online user-group (wiki, blog).
4. Participate in end-of-the-year survey feedback.
5. Share information with other building staff members on the use of iPads in the classroom. (Staff meetings, SIP Days, or possible lab classroom scenario)
Full participation is required in order to keep the equipment assigned to you. If you can no longer fulfill the obligations, the equipment will be reassigned to another staff member through the application process. The iPad will remain district property, but will be assigned to you until such time as you are no longer employed by the district and/or you do not adhere to the requirements of the equipment agreement. You will have opportunities for training and support, along with ideas on how to incorporate the technology in to your classroom.
