Implementing a Student-Centered 1:1 Initiative

An effective digital transformation is not just about technology, it is about utilizing technology to empower students to learn in new, more authentic ways. This authentic learning will occur when educators are focused on designing interactive, collaborative, real-world learning experiences for their students. The goal should not be to “go digital” or to “go 1:1,” but should instead be to become “student-centered.”

Attend this web seminar to hear from administrators at the 30,000-student Baldwin County Schools in Alabama, which is implementing an ambitious, multifaceted “Digital Renaissance” initiative that includes 1:1 MacBooks for all students in grades 7-12, with the goal of having a device in the hands of every K-12 student as quickly as possible.

Topics will include:

  • The seven key areas of focus to create a systemic student-centered transformation in a district
  • How to combine student-centered culture, teacher leadership, college & career ready standards, and 21st century resources and tools
  • How to begin the transformation with teachers through professional learning and the creation of a Leadership Academy
