Got into my classroom today to start setting it up for the new school year, school begins in just over a week, and was informed that at least 10 of my class iBooks were stolen. The thieves also got all our HP laptops that were in carts (32) and even took one of the carts!
So now I have to re-think my year. I won’t be 1:1 anymore – more like 1:2 at best so that really changes how and what we can do even if the iBooks are mine to use consistently. I know many would love to have even 1:2 and we will still do good stuff, but I’m really trying to showcase 1:1 … so it is disappointing to say the least. I was able to do our 1:1 pilot because we had the 32 HPs … without them the iBooks may have to be available to check out school wide which is only fair.
Well, maybe some good will come from this. After all,
Learning is messy!
