We've just received funding for our 2014-15 TLLP project that focuses on using the LMS and iPads in the elementary blended learning classroom.  I'm really interested in learning about what you have been up to!

We have had a bumpy ride getting our iPads formatted and working. But now that we are up and running, we have been able to have our students communicate their math thinking on the Explain Everything App. We are able to post their thinking to our Blog to share with teachers, students and parents. Check it out: Math Blog Corpus Christi

Any suggestions for headsets for iPad minis in my kindergarten class?  I have 5 iPad minis and need to get the head sets.

Hi Judy in response to "Parents are asking me what apps their children should have on their own devices for practice in math (Grade 3/4) at home. I'm looking for apps that are not drill and kill. Any suggestions?"  Khan academy is where I would start and have. At the elementary school I teach at we are getting all grade 4 to 8 students a login and password and teachers are coaches.  It is very powerful as it can provide personalized learning for each student.  Take a look. Since our provincial math scores took a hit this year we figured this could be something that helps our students in mathematics.

My cart was $2800 plus tax. It comes from Apple Education but is created by a partner company. Message me if you still need this info.

We are using i-pad minis in our school, but the focus is on using them for Internet access, writing and to archive their work (video and photos on Google Drive).  Parents are asking me what apps their children should have on their own devices for practice in math (Grade 3/4) at home. I'm looking for apps that are not drill and kill. Any suggestions?

Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to find information about iPad storage carts... Does anyone know how much a 20 iPad charging cart would cost? Roughly?

Stacey Purdon, another way to have students submit work to you is via dropbox. If you create a dropbox.com account, students can save work there and you can access it anywhere. It means that everyone needs the account info (an email address and password), but it can be very powerful.

Hi Bessie,
We like using 'Explain Everything' 'Felt Board' 'Bugs and Buttons' 'My Story' in the Kindergarten classroom. Louise
