One-to-One Laptops… What Makes it Work?
I posted for the first time today over at Teach More Better, a collaborative blog in the very early stages of development, which will hopefully offer some insight and varying perspectives into the world of educators in a one-to-one laptop district.
Irving ISD is beginning to re-evaluate its one-to-one laptop program to better serve our students and teachers. At each one-to-one campus we are being asked to create a gap analysis plan to lay out what we are currently doing well, what we would like to improve upon and the steps to get us there. My school seems to be getting a lot of praise for the way we have implemented our laptops, and I am proud of us, but we certainly have areas to improve upon as well.
Today I was in a meeting with my fellow Instructional Technology Specialists and we discussed the laptop program and where we think it should go. We also discussed why some of the schools have been more successful with implementation than others. I have some ideas about what a district/school needs to do to make a one-to-one laptop program a success instead of a disaster, but I am curious what you think.
What do you think a district/school must do or have in order to implement a successful one-to-one implementation program?Explore posts in the same categories: Academy, EdTech, help, IISD, one to one
