Moultonborough School District started a 1:1 iPad Pilot in 2012 with 2 grades and adding 2 grades each year. In 2015-16, every student has a 1:1 iPad. Collaboration between the Tech Dept and Media Center created comprehensive and focused professional development from the popular Tech Ten at staff meetings to weekly meetings with grade level teachers to full day workshops. A pilot allowed us to focus in on small groups of teachers and expanding what we learned together to the next group. We realized after our first year of this pilot that it was essential to use a learning management system in combination with a note-taking application to ensure that both staff and students could seamlessly share information and submissions with each other. We encountered several other issues along the way and elaborated effective policies to address them. Finally, our tech people will share tips on the management and deployment of these devices.
