MSMS opened its doors to administrators, educators, and I.T. professionals on Friday for school tours. The 1:1 iPad environment is in full swing and visitors got a glimpse of the 1:1 environment in action. In addition to the tours, the BPS Ed Tech Team shared the iPad deployment process and their general expertise to the attendees in presentations before and after the tours.

The day of tours were a part of the two-day iCON 2013 Conference. Over 300 people were in attendance to share ideas and tools that promote rich learning environments.
