Being #FutureReady takes planning. Here's 5 steps to planning for a tech initiative.

Hi everyone,
 
My district is interested in finding out how other schools are approaching BYOD. Do you have specific rules and procedures for implementation? Do those devices include cell phones?
 
If you have a BYOD policy and AUP that addresses BYOD in your district, could you please share it with us?
 
Thank you so much.

Could be very useful.
Earlier this week, I had blogged about BitPixels, a service that would take a screenshot of a webpage so that you could include it in whatever project you’re working on.  As often happens, the...

Article on the LAUSD iPad Initiative published today on Edutopia.org
The missteps in LAUSD's 1:1 program rollout stand as a costly illustration of the vision, planning, and implementation actually required for successful district-wide technology integration.

Trying to decide on the best #keyboards to purchase for use with #iPads. Just found out I'm NOT allowed to use bluetooth. The keyboards must be hardwire connected.  Any suggestions on the best to get? Looking at price and efficiency alike.

Does your district have a "Texting Permission Form" that parents sign to allow teacher-student texts?  If so, can you share?

Just an add on to what +Steven Wornell​ said. I use remind and everything he mentioned is true but parents or kids can opt to receive messages to their email rather than by text. Many of my families do this if they have limited texting plans. It's a great communication tool for the classroom.

Anyone doing a grade specific digital citizenship/safety presentation across their district? I'm looking at creating one for grade 4 students in our district that would cover a variety of topics. It would be a required piece for every class each year. If you can share I would appreciate it before I create the wheel! TIA

I used to run school-wide digital citizenship assemblies for all students. I first covered cyberbullying then we transitioned to the content creation/posting, developing positive digital footprints, and real world consequences for inappropriate behavior online. I even had each student Google themselves as a discussion topic.

So you want to change student learning...
We can do better than this (3). Roger Herriott: I am the technology coordinator for our district. Why would I not want to see this? What helps students get good jobs? (3). Angelique: I'm surprised that as many as 68% of those polled think standardized testing is somewhat or very.
