Re: OCR

Bud -

I was going to recommend OmniPage Pro for Mac, but I see that they are now
selling it for $499. That's outrageous. http://goo.gl/RFDi6 (We have an
older version that did not cost anything near that!)

I've used ReadIris at home with reasonable results. It's more reasonably
priced at $129.00.

Re: Aruba Wireless?

We have been using Aruba Networks for two years now and I can't say enough
about how great the system is!From the initial setup to the continued
growth of our wireless network it has been very nice product to work with.
We are currently utilizing it for our secure campus network and a captive
portal visitor network as well as a pool of remote access points.If you
have any questions please feel free to reach out.

Re: Programming apps for iOS (iPod, iPhone, iPad)

I just finished my first Android course with 12 high school students of

Re: Programming apps for iOS (iPod, iPhone, iPad)

The students started off building a quasi version of the HelloPurr Android
App (using a picture of them at a behind the scenes tour of the digital
environment at Carowinds amusement park and a sound clip from Finding Nemo).
They are moving from that to build an app called "Monster Spray" that I
built for iPhone (it is for my son - he is scared of monsters).Once they
build that, they will create educational apps of their own choosing.

Thanks for getting this all organized Fred!

Re: Programming apps for iOS (iPod, iPhone, iPad)

I'm nearing the end of the first semester of a year-long iOS development
class. It's a very fun, very small class -- two bright students, neither of
whom has had any formal programming experience before (one had absolutely
none, the other had taught himself ActionScript)... but both of them have
been eager to dive in and get their hands very, very dirty. Week 2, I found
myself explaining memory addresses, references and reference counting in
more detail than at any point since college compsci exams, because the
students wanted to know. So, short version: I've got an abnormally wonderful
class.

We've been using the Big Nerd Ranch iPhone book, which we have been _very_
happy with. But it pre-supposes a fair amount of familiarity with either
C/C++ or object-oriented programming in general. I've been filling in those
gaps for the students as we go.

With two weeks to go in the semester, with no formal programming experience
between them, the students are about 75% of the way through writing an app
to scrape the school website for homework assignments and then present them
as a hierarchical list. (Phase 2, they hope, will be a full-blown to-do
app.) It's been a combination of using the recipes from the book and doing a
bunch of guided (by me) reading of Apple Developer docs and Stack Overflow.

Got it. We self insure school owned machines... essentially our

Why not take out Applecare for machine failure and self insure for
accidental damage? We have been self insuring our financial aid

you have an accident.

A small thing you can do for our larger public purpose

I sent the following out to my school's faculty and staff this
morning. I hope you will do consider doing something similar at your
school.

Thanks for considering.

---------------------------------------------

As many of you know, public schools have been under tremendous stress
since the 2007 financial meltdown. Budgets have been slashed, hundreds
of thousands of teachers laid off, and the low-income populations
served by public schools are experiencing economic hardship we can
hardly imagine in our privileged school environment.

Many of you may not know that public schools serve 98% of the school
age population, while independent schools serve the other 2%. NAIS
schools serve about 1%.

Currently many politicians and pundits are blaming public schools and
public school teachers for failing to raise test scores.

Public school teachers are feeling very discouraged in this climate.
To show support for public schools there is a movement to wear
something red this Tuesday.
https://sites.google.com/site/sosmtm/wear-red-for-public-ed/why-red

A group of independent school educators is working to let our public
school colleagues know we support them by sharing group pictures of
those teachers at our schools who wear red on Tuesday. If you plan on
wearing red tomorrow let me know and I'll work on arranging a time for
a group picture.

I've created a discussion on ISENET
(http://isenet.ning.com/forum/topics/showing-support-for-public) where
we can share pictures.

Fred

PS Wouldn't it send a great message to see the NAIS staff decked out
in red tomorrow! :-)

Re: Programming apps for iOS (iPod, iPhone, iPad)

I'm working on learning android development myself, and have
experimented with AppInventor as well, but haven't yet done anything
in class. AppInventor is now open to all and pretty easy, but also
pretty limited. Otherwise, as a friend (who is a professional software
engineer) says, "android development is pretty straigthforward - the
only thing backward about it is Java." ;)

I know that Doug Bergman at Porter-Gaud does a little bit of android
development with one of his classes.

Cheers,
Vern

Have any of you used Square Trade (http://www.squaretrade.com/pages/ipad-la=

they offer 30% off in bulk so $126 for three years including accidental pr=

How about the Worth Ave Group insurance?(http://www.worthavegroup.com/ipa=
d)They are about $131 for three years and cover accidents, disasters, van=
dalism, as well as theft.However, weirdly, it does not cover regular mech=
anical / electrical issues.It also has a $50 deductible.

We are strongly considering implementing these in our K, 4 (classroom use o=
nly) and 1-to-1 in our middle school (6th - 8th).I am really hoping they =
will last three years, so I want to find some warranty to cover them for th=
ree years. =20

Also, those of you using it one to one, how are you dealing with each stude=

re you using the licensing program and distributing codes?I want teachers=

Re: iPad Insurance / Warranty

Renee,

Why not take out Applecare for machine failure and self insure for
accidental damage? We have been self insuring our financial aid
laptops for years. Just set aside a percentage of what you would pay
to one of the companies mentioned below, and draw from that pot when
you have an accident.

Programming apps for iOS (iPod, iPhone, iPad)

Is anyone teaching a class where students learn computer programming by pro=
gramming apps for the iPod/iPhone/iPad?

If so, I would appreciate any information you can share about the experienc=
e:How did it go?How big was the class?Do you have a syllabus you woul=
dn't mind sharing?Did any students have their apps accepted by iTunes?

We are interested in a course like this and are looking around to see what =
we can learn from others.Any information is greatly appreciated.

Re: Scheduling software that fits specific criteria for elementary school use

We've found some success with ASC Timetables (http://www.asctimetables.com/=
).The program is pretty flexible in terms of setting the length of class =
periods for block periods.The program is also free to try so you can see =
if it will meet your needs.

Thanks,

Hello all and happy holidays!

I know there have been some posts of late about block scheduling - a
colleague of mine here at CEE (Toddler-Grade 6) is looking at block
scheduling software. She asked me to post the following question to the
group:
"I know such a thing as a block scheduling assistant exists, but I
cannot seem to locate anything that is appropriate for elementary school
block scheduling and is not super expensive or packaged with 8000 other
things."
Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

Job Announcement: Director of Information Technology - The Park School

Hello,
I realize that Valerie Roman has made this announcement in a previous
e-mail, but to help clarify my situation for my ISED-L friends and
colleagues, I'd like to share the same message I sent along to my
Wizards-L friends.

Please note that to make application for this highly desirable position,
do not reply directly to me. Instructions are provided below.

Happy New Year everyone.

Subject: Director of Information Technology position at The Park School,
Brookline, MA

Hello,

After seventeen wonderful years as Director of Information Technology at
The Park School, at my own request I am happily stepping aside to pass the
baton to someone who will lead us into the next decade. This is not a
retirement for me. The Park School is expanding our technology department
by one person, and I will stay on as database administrator and will also
work on special projects. (We all know that there is never a lack of
"special projects" when it comes to school technology.)

In an attempt to be completely unbiased, I can say that this is a highly
desirable position working in a school which is healthy in every way. Our
leadership is committed to technology which can enable us to meet our high
aspirations as a premier elementary/middle school. Our technology team has
four talented individuals who are both individually and collectively
committed to the smooth operation of our infrastructure, and the
successful use of technology by every member of our community.

We seek a highly skilled technology leader who can combine a clear vision
for the instructional use of technology with experience as a network
administrator, including hands-on management of servers, databases, and
delivery systems. If you are aware of someone who would be a good
candidate, please forward this message, including the following link. On
the right side of that page, there are further details with instructions
for application. Assuming we find a strong candidate, our application
deadline is January 31.

Wishing you a very happy new year, and success with your important roles
in education.

Interactive Whiteboard - VBoard brand

Hello to all,

The school that I began working in last year has SmartBoards and 2 VBoards.
I am not familiar with VBoards, but one of them will not work interactively.
I tried finding a support location for this product, but there was nothing
on the internet. The only information I had was the name of the company that
we initially leased these boards, and eventually owned them. I did contact
the sales company to get a set of drivers, but the computer still will not
recognize that it is attached to the VBoard.

Does anyone have experience with VBoards and can direct me to a good support
company?

Thanks,

Daiva Navickas

Re: AV preferences

Just want to throw my support behind Sophos.We switched from McAfee to
Sophos 3 years ago (and we have just renewed for 3 more years).The price
is right, their support is great, and it works great cross-platform.

Happy Holidays,
