Educator and Blogger Telling the Story of His iPad Project


Fraser Speirs, who I’ve written about before in this blog, is a teacher and the tech guru for a small, private school for children ages 5 to 17 in Scotland. In his latest series of blog posts Fraser is documenting the process of deploying 115 iPads at his school. Starting with the project background on Day One, he chronicles his adventures (and misadventures) day-by-day. His storytelling offers technical guidance, lessons learned, and valuable reflections on the process and the problems. Yesterday was Day Seven (spoiler alert!) and two pallets of iPads arrived. I’m eagerly looking forward to Day Eight.
