Burley Elementary School Tech Coordinator and Teachers Blogging About iPad Initiative


Fellow Apple Distinguished Educator (ADE) Carolyn Skibba is the Technology Coordinator for the Burley School in Chicago. She recently asked me to take a look at the blog she set up to document Burley’s iPad implementation. I did and you should too. Burley teachers and students are using iPads in five first and second grade classrooms. Carolyn and the teachers are sharing what they and the students are learning.
