Almost all of the information on this section was a review. We have iTouches in the classroom that were part of the Power to Learn grant three years ago. In addition, we have a Macbooks in our classroom as well. Mrs. Smetek and I have been very luck to have an opportunity to have these devices in our classroom.
We try to be vigilant about the care of the devices. They are used at least 2-4 times a week. There are set rules about the use of the technology in the classroom and we have gone over the district's expectations as well. The devices are numbered so we can assign them to a student if needed. This has worked well for us so far and after three years, our computer are all holding up pretty well.
