While this was a LONG day (waking up at 5:00 a.m., working at the school from 7:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m., just getting back from our Russian dinner 8:15 p.m. and still having a few hours worth of work to do...) it has been, by far, the coolest and most rewarding day of this 5 month project!
Cui Wei is officially "rocking" with their new, iPads. I had some AMAZING support and fill in "geek squad" friends today (thank you Crystal and Susie!!) while introducing my 25 students to the idea of using iPads as a learning tool (while also forcing them real quick to work as a "community"...something that typically takes us several weeks to develop even in an American school with students familiar with the concept...)
It was a challenge, but incredible. I think we all learned a little something...hopefully we can use it tomorrow during our actual filmed lessons tomorrow!
