Her students use the iPad to access News sources. News APPs included CNN, NPR, CBS, MSNBS, NYTimes, and 60 Minutes. I will definitely be downloading the 60 Minutes App into my Flipboard . Now I don't have to worry about missing my Sunday episode. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary App provides pronunciation of words and was helpful for her ESL students. They also used the Voice Recorder HD App to practice giving interviews and Teleprompter App to practice delivering the news.
There was alot of administrative management involved initially to setup this new technology and track the APPs. As long as they purchased APPs in quantities greater than 20, they earned the 50% discount. They had to create a volume purchase administrative Apple account to buy the Apps. Then they had to track the codes for each App for each individual student. They also had to create a separate Wifi network to allow the student to print using the Wifi printer.
