We must better understand and embrace “using” technology in our teaching and learning.
The personal iPad is revolutionizing how we live, socialize, collaborate, organize, access information, and learn.
iPad implementations inpublic school classrooms are sweeping across the country at an unprecedented rate.
The time for Adventist schools to embrace this revolution is NOW…
…NOT when enrollments start to decline from students and parents choosing technologically advanced alternatives…
…and Adventist teachers start trying to catch up.
The iPad’sStaying Power • An extraordinary user-experience • No cords • Long battery life • Instant ON • The best on the market • Incredible interactivity for education • Portable • Lightweight • All-in-One resource
Cart or Carry? Skip the cart! It’s expensive. ($2,600!) It’s for shared devices. (Poor implementation!) It’s for transport. (Unnecessary!) It’s a waste of money for smaller systems like Adventist schools.
Get Personal 1:1 creates ownership, quality outcomes, better care, life application, and efficiency.
Get More $$$ …and reallocate budget funds by spending textbook dollars on iPads and eTextbooks which are far less expensive. Creative financing can help make it work.
