With the iPad starting to really make its presence felt within our school division, there has been a lot of questions asked regarding the multi-syncing of Apps to a number of iPads.  No one seems to know exactly where we stand with this.  I just came across the following link which does a pretty good job of describing the legalities of syncing one app to a number of devices.  The link is this interpretation is – http://wiki.canby.k12.or.us/groups/ipodusergroup/wiki/2b8ad/Purchasing_Apps_Apples_Volume_Purchasing_Program.html.  It would appear that we’ll have to register for the program to be able to reap the benefits of getting the educational discount.

You might recognize some of these – for instance ‘Wordle’.  It has been around for a while but it is still a very valuable tool to access.

This week, a number of administrators from the district will be attending a workshop which revolves around ‘Inclusive Education’.  Like everything else, one can find a lot of resources by searching on the internet.  I’d like to share a LiveBinder that has a lot of links to information and resources to assist schools in their development of an inclusive environment in their schools.  Here is the link – http://livebinders.com/play/play/116468.  Have a look – there is a lot of information here!

How about some more links to help you in the classroom:
