The WEGC Board of Trustees is subsidizing IPad minis for staff (50%), with ownership reverting to staff after 2 years. This is an opt in initiative, and part of an overall program of increasingly using technology in the classroom. This is being done in conjunction with a wider initiative of encouraging students to bring their own devices (BYOD).
This is a generous offer although the more cynical of you may think that the employer should provide the tools required (Laptops are provided.)
I am looking forward to using it to enhance student learning… it connects to existing overhead projection facilities.
