Observations by our teachers who will participate in the 1:1 next year have been a major component to our professional development. Giving teachers time to observe how learning looks when you add a device to a student's classroom experience and to see the differences in how teachers integrate the iPad into lessons has been key in helping our staff get ready for a full middle school implementation. Teachers observe the varied levels of readiness in using the iPads as an instructional tool. Now that we have completed the first year of our pilot, we have teachers at readiness levels. By teachers observing these differences, they begin to understand that they can move at their own pace and ability.
