What happens when I don't follow the rules?
Let's talk about the iPads...
The iPads in this classroom are for learning, not for taking pictures, texting or reading your email. Please remember that this is class time, not free time.
If caught doing any of the above, first time a warning, second time lose iPad for the day, third time...
The iPads are but a tool used to enhance my instruction...please do not assume that one tool is right for every job!
Please do not lose your log-in information sheet...this wastes valuable class time!!
Before I forget...turn these off and keep in your backpack!!
