Google Classroom is scheduled for release in Fall 2014. This is an interesting preview.
It’s been a very successful year. Students and teachers have continued to use iPads and other technology schools extensively, and 100% of teachers of grades 7-12 have completed iPad module training. We’re now in the process of getting MacBook Pro computers out to high school teachers as part of the latest round of upgrades.
The middle school pilot at Wester was great! We’re exploring what it would take to run it another year in order to collect more data.
This is for parents . . . If your child is eligible for a refund of his/her iPad deposit, please complete the iPad Deposit Refund Request on the http://edtech.mansfieldisd.org web site in the Parent Resources section. It is in the Forms drop-down menu.
Enjoy your summer!
