iPads at PSI an Update

 The iPad Cart is ready to check out!

It has been having a lot of fun introducing the iPad cart to the students.
Our kids really love them....and it is good to give them a chance to explore before you need to use them for learning activities!

Here are some things you need to know:

All iPads have a barcode and MUST be checked out!
The iPad cart was purchased for student use in the classroom.  
It will be checked out as a unit!

If you need a single iPad for your classroom!
 There are 2 iPads that are not part of the cart.
We would like you to use these and  NOT take an iPad from the cart.
Please respect the 3 day check out limit for these iPads.

If you need the iPad cart for your classroom!
Sign up for the iPad cart on the calendar clip board that we use for Media Spaces and Equipment!
 The iPad cart may be checked out to your classroom one day at a time.
The cart will need to be returned to the Media Center each day after school to ensure:
The security of the cart
proper recharging
proper synching
You may check the cart out for consecutive days as long as you return it each day

Please remind your students about the need to use these wonderful tools with care and respect!
Let me know if you have any questions.
We are also looking for suggestions for how to manage the cart efficiently, so if things occur to you we would love your comments.
