Our Learning Pilot with Google Nexus Tablets
Last school year we participated in a Learning Pilot in Craig Heinze's First Grade Classroom. We were fortunate to be chosen to participate in a 1:1 pilot of Google Nexus 7 Tablets. We were able to gather enough non-district allotted funds to purchase the tablets and to participate in the pilot. We will share our journey of our trials and tribulations and what we have in store for our K-2 grade classrooms for this coming school year.
