OK, we had a meeting with our principals. They were brought up-to-date of our plans to start using iPads in a classroom. After a keynote to present our intentions and how and why we would like to implement our ideas, we discussed the whole project and a couple of the finer points to elaborate on. Pedagogically they agreed with our vision of how to use the iPad (i.e. to support our teaching, not simply the need to implement technology) but expressed concerns about the financial aspect (just a we thought). We already worked out the outlines of a financial plan to make the project feasible even for less well-of parents. This is an important pillar of our institute, to include everybody in everything we do, regardless of anything!
So, our group knows what to do: work hard to create the perfect financial plan. Not an easy task, but we shall prevail!
