Goals for 1:1?
Increase learning thru engagement
1:1 has been successful in Elem Schools - attendance rates have increased and ISS has decreased.
Learn & Earn - How do we take existing PD and what more can the laptop do? How do you integrate and not add.
What kind of PD do our teachers need? and how do we start?
Tech Facilitator needs to be a nurturer
Teachers helping teachers
You need to have a firestarter that can act as a mentor. Get your firestarters together to create a core team and start building.
If the teachers are not ready its not ubiquitious - it is just laptops in a classroom.
Will tech PD supplant all other forms of PD?
You have to have some command over your tool to be an innovator - we have to teach the tool first and then teach the ways to use it.
How does this change assessment? What are our short-term and long-term measurements? Attendance? EOGs? Teen birth rates? low teacher turn-over?
