It's been three whole days and my head is still swirling with ideas, inspiration, and connections from the TLLP Sharing Summit this weekend in Mississauga, Ontario.
For starters, thank you to the Ministry of Education for allowing the funding, support, and every little thing that goes into making our TLLP's a success! Thank you next to the Ministry's partners in the Sharing Summit: OTF, for without them, our time together wouldn't be the same! (Who would get us back on track after…Continue

If anyone has some examples please send them our way, post for comments and consideration and we will make a decision on how to move forward with having "iPad Expectations" signed by parents and students. (I will check the iPad TLLP group to see if they have examples that can be tweaked to meet our needs). Thanks!

It's been a whirlwind of a week and a flurry of activity at our busy school. The iPad cart was ready to roll and the final "otter boxes" were placed on the minis for protection. Sometimes the only way to start is to jump right in and make observations. With less than a week of the cart making it's way around the upper level to our Visual Literacy team there are a few areas that will need immediate improvement. As part of the learning process, our group quickly learned that we needed "Explain…Continue
