Teachers' Blog Teachers' Blog

Linked with the webinars organised for the project teachers, this blog will display teachers thoughts, plans, ideas and experience with tablets in classroom. After each webinar, the teachers will write a reflective post on the given topic. Along the course of the project, this blog will provide an interesting insight into day to day teaching with tablets.

Blog 1 - Athénée Léon Lepage

 Creative blog 1 - Project expectations

·         Introduce your school and your role

  • I’m Grégory Cromphout, latin and greek teacher for students from 12 to 16. I’m at the Athénée Léon Lepage school for 5 years and we started last year an iPad project with the new pupils of the school (12years).
  • I am the webmaster of the school (http://www.leonlepage.be) and I’ve been using all my informatic skills to improve and facilitate my colleague's work (online reports, common calendar, tablets and interactive whiteboard trainings…).
  • I’ll be the coordinator for this project : regular trainings, FAQ docs, tablets updating, etc.

 

·         I am/We are currently …

  • We received last year one iPad per student from the 1st grade and they could keep it for their 2nd grade because we received new iPads for each new student in the school in September. So, eventually, every student in the 1st or 2nd grade (250 tablets for 12years-14years pupils from disadvantaged social background) has got his own iPad since September.
  • We also received iPads for every teacher and 5 iMac to make our own iBooks.
  • The tablets must stay in the school in private lockers when the students leave the school (to avoid theft from strangers) but, all the day long, they keep their iPads with them for every courses (french, latin, dutch, maths, physics, biology, geography, history).

 

·         What would you like to achieve from the CCL project?

  • This year, our team focuses on creating new contents for our students so we really appreciate the CCL project and the scenario exchanges system, it’s very valuable because there’s not so many « tablets school » in Belgium.

 

·         What do you think will be your biggest challenge?

  • There’s a lot of new events in our school this year (new principal, new administrative team, a lot of new teachers…) so we need to do some adjustments in our method.
  • The biggest challenge for me is to involve every one in the team and to create new habits as the « iPad meetings » : every week, one of the teacher presents to colleagues an interesting App he found and a scenario he created. We hope this meetings will improve creativity and pedagogical innovations in our classrooms.

 

·         Identify 2 key questions at this stage that you are asking in school about the use of tablets within 1:1 learning.

  •  Will we have as many technical problems as last year (wifi connexions !!!) ?
  •  Will the students result be improved by the use of tablets in the classrooms ? And will we be able to evaluate efficiently these improvements ?
