Between a combination of iPad2s and iPad minis, my classroom finally has a 1-to-1 iPad ratio. I am beyond ecstatic, but to whom much is given much is required. While I am worried about the well being and upkeep of $10,000 worth of iPads in my classroom, I try to keep the rules for their use as simple as possible for my early college high school students.
I have used iPads in the classroom for less than a year, but was unable to find blogs or websites that listed student friendly iPad rules. Most of what I found were rollout manuals with lengthy dos and don’ts. So if you’re new to using iPads in the classroom as well, I thought I’d share my (5) basic rules that I use with my early college high school students.
The goal of my iPad rules were to keep them easy to remember and as student friendly as possible. Please let me know what you think of these rules and feel free to share the rules you use in the classroom with your students. I’d love to tweak my current rules for next school year. [Yes, I am already thinking about and planning for next school year! Lol! :-)]
