We're "Microblogging!"

We're "microblogging" from Room 5!  We used our iPads today to write and send tweets on Twitter.  How cool! Check it out!

That is wonderful that your school district supports the use of the Ipad. How do you work out the network, online issues? I received two Ipads through a grant and our district will not allow it to access the web through our network or pay for 3G service, therefore the Ipad is just an expensive gaming tool. I have to sync and buy Apps on my own Itunes account from home. Please tell me how you got them to support it!

Ruth- Luckily, I received the money for the iPads and Apps through a foundation supported by our school district (the BBH Schools Foundation). Because they supported this and because our district added wireless internet this year, I did not have a problem with getting connected. If I were you, I would begin showing your district all of the awesome blogs, articles, and tweets about how to use the iPad in class as a learning tool. Maybe you can sway them that way? Good Luck!
