    All tablets need to be

returned each day/evening

after use – not to be taken home Please

do not add Internet favorites

items to the desktop – If you find a useful site, let your technical person know , or If you find any Kindle or Google, again let your technical person know

useful free books

through

Keep an eye on students

to make sure they are not adding items to the tablet

   Some students may have

trouble using the touchscreen

like using their fingernail or a pen I-Phone or I-Pod headphones do work with the tablets. Students must provide their own – we do not supply them.

Please

no food, gum or liquid

near the tablets

       The current model we have needs Flash to run videos and interactive software They don’t seem to keep a charge for very long If the system software needs upgrading, you must do each tablet separately When adding Favorite websites, must add them to each tablet – easy but time consuming We use basically for Internet. However, there is a free program called Kingsoft Office that has docs, spreadsheets & presentations. You can also access your work and home email, which is convenient if you are away from the office Some adult ed interactive programs, such as Ventures, the screen is too small and it will not allow you to “stretch” it like other screens will do You may not get all the standard “home” pages, such as your local library or newspaper

  Very popular in the Evidence Based Reading Instruction classrooms (EBRI) One-on-one teacher training This instructor wasn’t able to attend group tablet training These students are working hard on a spelling website This teacher is assisting her student in getting onto a website with short stories

• • • • • • “We use it at the beginning of the class to encourage them to arrive on time.” “Introduced them to websites they can also use at home.” “Incorporate the use of the tablet with our EBRI components.” “Reading class uses them for vocabulary practice and to research reading topics” “Higher level ESL class uses them to research blogs for their writing assignments.” “Wonderful teaching tool for both the younger students who are text savvy and for the older students that are using this type of technology for the first time.”

  “The library information is a learning experience and the different websites also.” “The application homebound services is a excellent idea for those individuals that are disabled or handicapped with special needs.”
