IEP4U.COM has over 4000  Goals and Objectives (IEP-ITP) each with changeable benchmarks. The Idea Statements are spread out over seven subjects (Domains) an... Teachers, parents and students can now access objectives directly from this Web Site. Input key words, phrases, or test names in the search engine to find just the correct objectives for your students needs. Copy and paste any information you want, then modify the objectives (examples) to exactly describe the needs of your students. The kid section will give your students personal input to write their own objectives (with your help) and to play some interesting games as well.

This information is is designed to help you with the daunting task of writing proper IEP's  The data within this web site was written to correlate with the unique characteristics of various formal assessments. Since assessment is essential for the development of the IEP, specific questions were evaluated and idea statements written based upon those questions. Searching the data for idea statements by assessment will enable teachers to plan lessons or web quests based upon how the student scored on the assessment.

Students can pick their own IEP using Pictures!

Areas to consider when setting-up a 1:1 iPad scheme in an educational K12 environment. http://wp.me/p1cQjT-39

Please let me know how other schools have successfully implemented a 1:1 or 1:2 iPad scheme.

I think all of these products are the "right" product.  My thinking is that the platform is not important but rather having connected classrooms where students use 1:1 as a learning process is the goal.  I love Ubuntu and the fact that they have a netbook version is even better.  I can't think of a more robust, cost efficient option for 1:1 schools. Plus, then all web based, free options like Google Apps are on the table.  Basically are looking at $300 for a really good netbook with Ubuntu.  Not bad at all!  Great conversation, thanks for sharing!

Your points are taken and I understand the different views for different types of educational establishments, especially when money and budgets are very important.

Maybe I should have said that my educational establishment is looking at using as much of the free applications that are available (which includes Google Apps for Education).


Or Maybe I am just a dedicated Apple educator.


It will be interesting to see what happens in the Digital Technology market over the next 5 years.

Cprofitt - I find your comment informative and I understand the implications of costs for many schools. However, have you looked at Netbooks and Open Source Software from a learning perspective and ease of use? I am currently looking at a 1:1 iPad scheme for my Reception/Early Years classes (3 to 4 years old) - would they find Netbooks as easy to use? Please don't get me wrong - we are also moving more to Open Source Applications especially Google Apps and other cloud based applications. However, sometimes administrators/local authorities forget that the purpose of using technology in the classroom is as a tool to aid learning. I always look for the right tool to do the job, rather than look at the cost (within reason). Just a minor observation.

Looking at current research and using current personal experiences - I have looked at linking Teacher Appraisal to Teacher Training in a 1:1 Laptop School with reference to 21st Century Teaching Pedagogies http://wp.me/1cQjT

Would welcome criticism, ideas and suggestions

I've always wondered if we could better funding on a state or national level for even better deals for students and staff to purchase or rent.

I have attended a divisional meeting regarding the possibility of purchasing iPads for some of classrooms as a way to conduct research of its feasibility. Does anyone have information on classrooms using iPads? Any suggestions or advise would be appreciated.
