Look for ideas to support the use of Macs in a class of  upper school students studying Religion and Life. All suggestions or comments welcomed.

Scratch is a very simple program for creating fun games, animations, cartoons, educational games and promotional media for school events.  Very user friendly and supportive online resources to get you and your students started.

I am not exactly sure what you mean by creative programming, but Scratch allows you to create just about anything you can imagine in a very simple visual way.  You can use it to make animated movies or create just about any game you can imagine.  One of the nicest things about it is that you can see what is under the hood of any Scratch game when you get stuck on something.  My favorite tutorial site is, if you follow the lessons in order you will be an expert in a weekend.  Have fun!

I'm spanish teacher of maths. I use Mac in my work but the policy in my country is to foment the use of free platforms of software (Linux). I hope find ideas for my work.

In our elementary school we are implementing a plan where 6 iPads are placed in a classroom. We are implementing an "App of the Week" approach, in which students would be selected to have the iPad for one entire day of the week. Six iPads are enough for all students in our classrooms to have ownership at least one day per week--utilizing this device for the "App of the Week" and also some project based learning.

We are in infancy stages but this link shared by Steven below is a great springboard for anyone looking at multiple iPads in a building.

Areas to consider when implementing a 1:1 iPad scheme

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