Pilot Project Using iPods and iPads in the Classroom
Region 3 Teaching, Learning and Technology Center St. James Parish - Lutcher, LA
This project was completed during the 2010-11 school year in south Louisiana. Region 3 is composed of Ascension, Assumption, Lafourche, St. James, St. John the Baptist, St. Mary and Terrebonne Parishes.
All seven districts and one non-public district in the region were invited to participate in an action research project focusing on Kindergarten ELA, 5th Grade Math, and 9th Grade ELA. Each District Technology Coordinator (DTC) and one non-public DTC identified one tech-savvy classroom teacher to receive and implement, for a period of one school year, the following tools into their daily lessons: one Mac laptop, one iPad, 4 iPods, one FLIP video camera. Teachers received support through the TLTC facilitators and locally identified lead/support teachers.
