Nexus 7 Rollout in 4th Grade

We're all so proud to be involved with this effort. The second class set of Nexus 7s the EdTechTeam donated for 1:1 student use was rolled out earlier this month...

YEAH!!!! The Nexus 7s arrived in Maine on Friday afternoon and we were able to give them to students just three days later. Kate Parkin (4th grade teacher) and I had spent time preparing for the devices, exploring apps, becoming familiar with various resources like Edutecher and Android4Schools and thinking about how to bring this to her students in the most productive way. Some weekend work went into charging, updating and preparing the tablets with each student's Yarmouth Google account.

Do any of you know of any schools purchasing Nexus 7s for student use? We'd love to connect with the educators in those schools as well - to share challenges and best practices. Thank you in advance for any comments you might leave.

Meanwhile, we hope you all have a happy new year celebration. :)

  1. We rolled these out with Grade 5 students in October. The biggest issue we have had is screen cracking. The cases we purchased do not protect the corners and that seems to be weak area on the tablet.

  5. As far as any student can see, smart thoughts as mental activity may involve individual skills needed at college. Young people are looking for unique short stories and can pay for an essay by papersmart.net as we all hope professional writers of such top quality possess prominent writing style no matter what the topic of the research would be. High school audience can make it best to make the educational process more or less simple.
