Today in the mail I got one of the first peices of new technology in years at my school. Through some special funding i am buildling new mobile carts. These mobile carts will have interactive whiteboard tablets. These tablets function as a portable version of the SMART boards. Trying it out today it looks like it's going have a bit of a learning curve, especially with some of the older teachers.
Right now I've got a demo unit but if all goes well I'll be purchasing 8 more to go with all of my carts. I plan on doing some one on one training with the test group, younger teachers spread throughout the grade level, and see how it goes from there. From there I plan on doing a grade by grade training on the new technology. Having each of them try it out.
My question is this. Has anyone else recently introduced this technology? What major hang-ups have you had with training and implimentation of this new technology?
