“Franklin Academy in Wake Forest, NC has been infusing iPads into high school classrooms since the product’s release in 2010. As the devices have become more advanced and ubiquitous over the past few years, use of iPads has spread to all K-12 grade levels at Franklin Academy. Franklin Academy K-2 campus uses multiple mobile iPad carts containing 30 iPads each. Each of the 30 iPads in a cart set is configured to sign in to a shared account for iCloud and Google Drive for that cart.
In Franklin Academy’s Kindergarten through 2nd grade classrooms, teachers have built a workflow for their shared-use iPad carts around three key components: iCloud, Google Drive, and specific management procedures. iPads are not a reward or a distraction in these classes, but tools for learning and content creation, with the ability to share students’ digital creations with teachers and parents.
The following techniques and tools have proven helpful in our use of the iPads in this setting.” To read further please click here: http://www.emergingedtech.com/2014/10/ipad-workflow-elementary-classroom/
