I hosted another group of educators this month, a Whangarei Principals group. I continue to be amazed at the fact that these schools appear to be isolated and have had next to no experience or support in implementing Apple devices in their schools. Interestingly they have been visited by reps selling Google Chrome Books and it continues to annoy me that Principals are then left making uninformed decisions with price point as their only decider. After a visit with us and having their questions answered...or in some cases an aha moment after realising 'they don't know what they don't know' they are all passionate about learning more about the potential of embedding Apple technologies.
This month I published the 4th and final multitouch book in the Early Years - iPad in the Classroom series; Viewing. I am most proud of this book as it embeds and encapsulates the
Everyone Can Create curriculum. Producing these resources and holding a leadership position is a real challenge, especially this term as I hold the role of Acting Deputy Principal and shared SENCO responsibilities. I am looking forward to trying the new feature within the Pages software to produce Ebooks, I can see this as being an achievable option for our teachers and younger students also,
