Tablets Coming to ISOCS

There's some exciting developments at ISOCS this year - the Middle School has welcomed its first class, fantastic new teachers have joined the staff....and there's a new technology initiative underway.

Middle School students will be using Samsung Galaxy Tablets as one of the technology tools at their disposal.  The ISOCS staff has been thinking about this since the Spring, preparing support materials, planning lessons, and just generally thinking of all the possibilities contained in the Tablets, and how they can serve  teaching and learning at ISOCS.

I'm excited about a Wikispaces wiki we've put together  as a catalogue of Android Apps for the Tablets, to focus attention on teaching and  learning possibilities, and perhaps distract students from the Ali Baba's Cave of the Google Play Store.  I've had enormus help from Richard Byrne's site  Android for Schools.  

Links to more resources for our ICT at ISOCS can be found in the sidebar of the ICT Handbook.
