(Click on any image on this post to see it full size.) This is a cross post that I started on my blog as a plan for using 12 iPads in the Fall of the 2010-11 school year with my middle school Science classes. I teach three 6th grade classes and two 8th grade classes. Here's what I'm planning to use on the 12 iPads. On the bottom dock of the main screen, next to the Safari, Mail and iPod links, I've placed a link to my 6th grade Moodle page , a link to my 8th grade Moodle page and a link to our classblogmeister blogs. Students can access my Moodle documents and links and resources as well as their blog accounts.
