Going 1:1 with iPads: lessons learned
In this 40 minute webinar, Rob Gervais, director of technology for Enosburg Town Schools, goes over the nuts and bolts of deploying a 1:1 iPad environment. Enosburg Town Schools were among the first schools in Vermont to go 1:1 with iPads, and Gervais faced a number of challenges in the implementation of them, including the need for upgraded school-wide wifi and a charging system. At the same time, he and the rest of the school were able to innovate some amazing tools for iPad management, including communications with families about the program.
