“If administrators and teachers complete the checklist ahead of time, they will complete the setup process relatively quickly,” an MISD Technology Development source predicted.

    When will students be able to fill out paperwork and pickup their ipads?

    July 6, 2012
    • Frontier High School – August 14
      Lake Ridge High School – August 28

      Frontier was selected for deployment prior to the beginning of school because of its small size and familiarity with 1:1 technology deployments. Other dates have not been set, because the rate of deployment will depend on whether students and teachers prepare. Continue to watch https://misdtechnotes.wordpress.com for details.

    • Students will have the opportunity to complete paperwork and pay fees at schedule pickup/orientation so that the actual deployment process will go much more quickly for them. They’ll receive a FASTPASS that will enable them to go through a faster process on the day of deployment. Please watch http://edtech.mansfieldisd.org for more information about the forms. The Student Checklist and the iPad User Agreement are posted already.

    What is the plan to redo the Mansfield ISD home page? Currently much of its navigation is based on Flash. Using it on an iPad is cumbersome and takes much more searching to get to the same pages.

    • The MISD web page is being redesigned so that it does not include Flash.
