Essential Strategies For 1:1 Success: Finding Your “Why”
The past two decades have seen 1:1 computing grow in popularity, with school districts across the country deploying millions of laptops and tablets to students, excited by their potential to enhance learning. But unfortunately, with the trend came the reality that many school systems didn’t adequately plan, prepare for or sustain their 1:1 initiatives, and failed to see positive impacts as a result. Why do some 1:1 initiatives succeed and others fail?
Attend this web seminar to learn the essential strategies for a successful 1:1 initiative. We’ll be joined by two technology administrators from Nixa Public Schools in Missouri, who will discuss their innovative CONNECTED Initiative, a carefully planned 4-stage program establishing a 1:1 environment in the district. Through focused strategic planning, professional development focused on future-ready instructional strategies, community engagement and an overall emphasis on answering the “Why?” behind the program, Nixa’s 1:1 program is succeeding in ways many such initiatives have failed.
Topics will include:
- The 1:1 landscape
- Common pitfalls of 1:1 programs and initiatives
- The essential strategies for 1:1 success
