For teachers and students to best harness the power of these devices, they need unfettered access to obtaining the best software and apps available. Our devices can be used both for consumption of content and as transformational tools, due to their ability to create content.
Together, the Teaching & Learning and Technology & Innovation departments want to provide teachers and students with easy access to the best tools available. Therefore, we've worked together to develop a Barrington 220 Software/App Requisition Process. We hope this process will help teachers consider the "cost" of apps, provide teachers and students with quick access to instructional resources, and boost the abilities of the iPad and MacBook Air to transform teaching and learning.
Regarding the "cost" of apps, please remember that downloading software to a device may cost dollars (in the case of paid apps), but all apps cost space on the devices—especially on iPads with more limited storage than MacBook Air laptops. We want students to be able to download and create documents, videos, photos, animations, and other projects on their devices without constantly being concerned about available space. Therefore, we must strike a careful balance of providing the best apps available to maximize the potential of our devices.
Here is the Barrington 220 Software/App Requisition Process.
