Registration is open for Camp iPad for Parents (Fall 2015)

We are pleased to announce the Fall 2015 Camp iPad for Parents dates and locations.

These learning opportunities are available to all parents in the district. They are best-suited for parents of students who already have an iPad as part of the Learning Technology Plan (all middle school students, and Frederick, Longmont, Lyons, Mead, and Silver Creek High Schools).

Learn best practices, tips and tricks, and connect with other interested parents; Topics will include ‘iPad 101’ (learn the basics of how to use an iPad), managing devices at home, appropriate use of technology, social media, and more!

Register early because space is limited.

If you cannot attend one of the the fall 2015 sessions, please know that more Camp iPad for Parents opportunities will be announced in the future.

Thank you for your interest and we hope to see you at one of the Camp iPad for Parents learning opportunities in the coming weeks.

Are you covered? (iPad insurance reminder)

We strongly encourage parents of 6th-12th grade students with iPads to obtain the insurance offered by the district.

The insurance is a tremendous value for only $35 in case of accidental damage, loss or theft. Also, one of the “hidden values” is that if your student’s iPad ever becomes damaged they will get one back in 2 or 3 days versus 2 to 3 weeks if they do not have insurance! The reason for the lengthy delay for those without insurance is because we must send the broken iPad off for repair and will not know the cost to pass on to the student until it is returned.

Payment plans are available if paying the lump sum is not possible at this point in time.

Hurry before the opportunity passes on September 11th.

If you have any questions please contact your school or visit this link for more information.

One word to describe “Camp iPad for Parents”

Many interested parents attended the second Camp iPad for Parents event at Coal Ridge Middle School on April 23rd.

Parents learned tips and tricks, how to adjust settings on an iPad to their liking, visited with teachers and students, discussed “wonderings” and concerns with fellow parents and educators, and enjoyed meeting parents from around the district.

We discussed screen time, organization, assignments, and several other aspects of modern student life.

After the event was over, we asked participants to describe Camp iPad for Parents in one word:
