A new flexbooks program will be implemented this fall in math classrooms across a suburban Atlanta school district to keep up with changing state requirements and reduce textbook costs.

Flexbooks help Georgia district keep up with math mandates

Henry County Schools is using Edgenuity software on newly purchased iPads in its math classrooms, nicknaming the program “flexbooks” because teachers and administrators will have the flexibility to create customizable math content for each classroom and student, says Assistant Superintendent Aaryn Schmuhl. Parents will also have access to the content online so they can help students with homework. “We’re not just putting tablets in the hands of the students,” he says. “In this case, administrators and teachers are able to control what applications and resources are on the tablets in each classroom.” “There was a lot missing in the textbooks when it came to meeting the latest standards,” Schmuhl says.

iPad/iPod-Touch/iPhone Apps for SPED/Special Needs by David Ligon. Our preK-12 district is rolling out iPads this fall to support a SPED program, and so one of my objectives for attending the ISTE2010 Conference in Denver was to identify the latest SPED apps for these devices to use in our program.

iPad/iPod-Touch/iPhone Apps for SPED/Special Needs by David Ligon

My research included discussions with Meg Ormiston, who let me know about the TCEA i*apps Spreadsheet (which appeared to be missing a SPED column), Camilla Galiolo who showed me apps she used in a recent pilot for autistic students, and Cindy Peters who gave me detailed info on which apps she uses in her work with special needs kids. In lieu of a more specific i*app resource for special needs, both Camilla and Cindy recommended use of typical age-appropriate iPad educational applications which are geared toward the desired cognitive level.

Every minute spent dealing with administrivia is a minute that your not spending preparing lessons, or providing feedback - or relaxing!

Ever since I was a kid, I loathed back to school commercials. They always showed parents gleefully skipping through aisles of pencils and notebooks as the kids, sullen and dejected, sluggishly followed along. It's a scene we are all too familiar with, and one that creates a negative stigma around school. But what if that scene were flipped? What if the kids were happy and eager to get to school?

Although this post is a little early for the back-to-school season, consider it an early reminder that summer is near and that, eventually, the start of the 2013 school year will be close at hand.
