I'm so glad that we will be getting some more laptops for the classroom. I have five that work on a consistent basis these days, and look forward to having more available for daily use.
What I learned about the devices:
1. I will need to lug them into the network and power at times to receive updates from the district.
2. Students may find it easier to log on if they use SBS/username!
3. They each have a video option and we can record and manipulate videos.
I have my students reading in BOOKSPOTS while I pull guided reading groups. I will be able to create more webhunts, and reading/technology projects for students to share their reading and thinking now that I will have these devices. We will talk about proper use, storage, and sharing before we begin.
