From iPad to blog post -- I *love* this idea of sharing conference notes with the world via the iPad! What a great model Wesley Fryer offers us educators for sharing ideas!

Wesley notes that his post is on "Maria Henderson's presentation on using iOS devices (specifically the iPad) at the TCEA Area 7 Technology Conference on 10 June 2011".

There are some great ideas in Wesley's notes:

Managing iOS Devices in the Classroom

My favorite take-way?
If you are going to do a widespread implementation of iPads, it is a really good idea to get all your students their own email accounts
- use email as a tool to distribute content


(MY THOUGHT: THIS IS SO TRUE AND A GOOD REASON FOR SCHOOLS TO ADOPT GOOGLE APPS FOR THEIR DOMAIN!)

Our school just adapted Google Apps for Education this past year, so Wesley's tip (in CAPS) confirms our thinking about how to handle "in the cloud" projects.

Thank you for your generosity, Wesley! I hope more educators follow your lead.

And yes, I definitely will be following you on Twitter!
