I'm currently still in Brasil and away from my home computer which I use for editing photos and videos. As you can expect I have numerous gigs of video and photo data. That said, I have a few lovely snaps and a video to share with you all. Before I get into that I want you all to know just what has been set in motion in a summarised manner. Don't worry, I have A LOT more to write once I'm back in Melbourne.
- $3000 AUD was raised and used to purchase 4x iPad mini 32gb units with covers and screen protectors, a new Toshiba touch-screen laptop, ios apps, Office, and LEAP Motion unit and apps.
- All goods were handed over to Professora Maria Helena Pereira during the week of the 24th of September on Itaparica Island, Bahia, Brasil.
- Helena now teaches at two schools 5 days per week, thus more students will be benefiting from these tools than initially thought.
- Daily training was provided to Helena so that she understood how to use all the devices appropriately and to their fullest potential.
- The devies were EXTREMELY well received by students and other staff members.
- Helena has already begun utilising the iPads in ways I had never thought of or experienced.
Expect to hear from me again with a full write up in the next 2 weeks.
