I just returned home from a quaint little awards ceremony in which I was one of 16 recipients of an Enrichment Award grant from our city's Education Foundation. Hooray! I came home with 4 new iPad minis and a charging station for my classroom...
When completing this recent grant application and figuring out how many I could receive under the grant dollar amount there was enough funding for 4 minis plus a little money left over, but not enough to make it 5 minis. So I added on the charging station instead. During the renovations this summer, they brilliantly decided to cover up ALL BUT TWO electrical outlets in the classroom. We were told that they'd be back in to add them after the year started. It is now 7 months into the year, and I still only have two outlets.
I unwrapped and unpacked my new stuff when I got home and played around with the charging station just to see how it was set up.
My goal is to have 12 iPad minis in the classroom - 2 students per iPad is ideal. Off to a good start with 10!
happy day 18
