Project Lead the Way relies heavily on iPads or Minis, so we needed to order several. (On the Project Lead the Way website they provide guidelines for how many a school will need based on student population: www.pltw.org)
So we first worked to purchase the iPads, and we then worked to become more familiar with them and with the many available apps on the market that lend themselves to STEM education.
Many were very simple. For instance, K and 1 teachers found that students loved a Ten Frame app they found. This app aligned perfectly with instruction and created a center to better acquaint our students with the iPads, too. (Though, quite frankly, we all know that few of them were strangers to Apple products. Even in K.)
