On Wednesday, January 25, a team of teachers, administrators and students presented results of the WIFI pilot to the EISD school board, sharing the results of individual experiences, surveys done, student and teacher focus groups and the work of the Westlake Vision committee. Students Arnab Chatterjee and Steven Wilbanks even provided the school board with an example of Facetime at work.
More details will be forthcoming, but this video which was shared during the board meeting provides a portrait of the iPad pilot in progress.

The Westlake committee has recommended to the board extending the pilot to 9th and 10th grade students at Westlake for the 2012-2013 school year, using previously allocated technology funding. Details will be forthcoming!
