Well, the iPads are on their way. I bought Apple's 10 pack they offer to educators with the Apple Care Plus. I wrote the grant before the New iPad came out, so I actually had asked for more than the price they are now. Technology works that way! With the money gained from the price difference we looked into getting Apple TV but the hook ups didn't quite work out. Instead, I opted for a digital visualizer. I got the Ladybug and it has changed the way I teach. I've only had it for a few days, but it makes such a difference when students can watch you demo up close on the screen. I know every single student has the same opportunity to see and I have a much clearer view of the kids for classroom management. Last school year I was teaching 5th grade about perspective and I needed this set up. What did I turn to? But of course, the multi-functional iPad! All it took was a VGA hook up to my computer monitor and a file box, for height. What can't the iPad do?
