This is the workspace for the USD 418 iPad Study Group.  Each member of the group has been invited to these pages so that we can collaborate on tasks.  If you have any issues with logging in or access to the pages, please contact Andy Hanson.  



About the group:


The iPad study group was formed with the help of a grant by Cox Communications; allowing the purchase of 5 iPads for the use of enhancing technology in USD #418 Public Schools.  Its members are comprised of teachers and staff members who represent a cross section of grades and subjects in the school district.  The mission of the group is to determine the best uses of these tools, and to advise on matters pertaining to future use in classrooms across the district.  At the conclusion of the group's work, we hope to have a bank of information and resources that are easily available to teachers and staff across the district; enabling them to make decisions and plan accordingly to meet objectives.
