Keys to Success in 1-to-1 Using Google for Education

The 9,000-student Council Bluffs Community School District in Iowa was one of the first K12 districts in the country to use Chromebooks and Google Apps for Education in a 1-to-1 implementation, beginning in 2011. Council Bluffs has successfully implemented a 1-to-1 initiative for all students in grades 3-12, and is also currently piloting tablets in elementary schools. The district has seen improved student achievement, rising graduation rates and decreasing dropout rates, with some of the most significant improvement in the state.

Attend this web seminar to learn about the process the district went through before deciding on Google tools, the impact of the initiative on educators and students, and the keys to consider before implementing a 1:1 initiative in any district.

  • Get an overview of Google for Education, Chromebooks, tablets with Google Play for Education, and Google Apps for Education
