Apparently... I HATE WAITING! I thought I was a patient person, but as it turns out... NO!
After submitting a purchase order for 24 iPods and 2 iPads the week before our winter break, the devices were finally delivered our first day back. I have been patiently (or impatiently) waiting their arrival as they were sent to district offices for cataloging. Guess what... THEY ARE HERE! They arrived last week Thursday and it felt like Christmas all over again. I shrieked with excitement when they were causally dropped off by our media specialist. I spent most of the day Friday setting devices up with the help of our district tech coach and my principal.
In preparation to receive the devices, I spent time ordering charging stations, cases, and VR viewers. It is the little things you don't think about! I have hit a little bump in the road with ordering the View-Master viewers as Amazon has a limit on three per account. I am seeking alternative routes to acquire that final 21 viewers. I have also been collecting resources on how to use VR (virtual reality) in the classroom. Join my G+ community (https://goo.gl/MTCROK) to look at all the resources I have found.
I hope to run my first Google Expedition sometime this week as we wrap up our unit on body systems. Fingers crossed it goes off without a hitch! Also, I am off to Vegas this weekend to present at a conference and hopefully gather more great resources.
