Arlington (USA) classroom teacher, Katharine Hale, has shared a fantastic iPad Contract idea which was developed with her 5th grade (pupils aged 10-11) about their responsibilities of using tablets in the classroom.
On her blog she explains,
There were many times last year where I wished I had something to pull out of my files and point to when a student wasn’t being responsible with their iPads. Thankfully I have this year to make changes! I wanted a contract that showed some student character to it so that it meant something to them. I think it’s very important that the contract isn’t pre-made by the teacher.
The finished project looks amazing, and Katharine explains that she created a copy for each student to sign and keep.
When it was all done, I scanned it into a PDF by using a scanning apps on my phone. This made it easy to transfer it in a printable copy. Each student then received their own copy of the contract and signed it. I’m so excited for the way these contracts turned out and can’t wait to bust it out when necessary (which hopefully is never)!

A great classroom idea for those working with children and tablet computing.
