On Wednesday, September 19, all WHS teachers received new Apple iPad 3’s! The teachers believe this new technology will be extremely beneficial in their classrooms. This will allow teachers to implement the use of more technology in class every day. There are numerous great apps that came already installed on the iPads for teacher use; thanks to our great technology department. Apps installed include Siri, Puffin, Dictionay, Skitch, Keeper, Flashcards, Notability, TED talks, Doodle Cast Pro and other incredible apps. There is even an app that will aid the math teachers with their FLIP classroom.
Many teachers have been seen “playing” with their iPads throughout the day. Mrs. Webb has already taught class with hers. She especially enjoys using Splashtop, an interactive app that lets hers control her computer desktop from anywhere. Many teachers have expressed their excitement to receive this technology. The possibilities for classroom integration of the iPad are endless. More iPad training for teachers is coming up, so get ready to see your teachers taking advantage of this great technology perk in the classroom.
