Going 1:1. What's Next?

Congratulations! Your school has gone 1:1. Every student now has a piece of technology in his or her hands. Your school district is getting recognition for taking the right step into the 21st century. The hard part is done, right? But now what?

With these new technologies in your classroom comes the possibility of truly changing the way education is done. Does the iPad connected to your projector just replace your normal whiteboard or is there the possibility for you to share information in different ways? Does the video player on each of your students' computers replace the television or can that player change the way your students interact with and consume media content. Does the technology you're using just extend the same, old teaching practices from 1950 or can it reshape the classroom. 1:1 gives your students the oppor­tu­nity to col­lab­o­rate with oth­ers in ways unimaginable twenty years ago. The entire library is at your students fingertips allowing them to research top­ics of inter­est. Most importantly, your students with a computer allows school learning to happen any­where at...

STEM or STEAM? When we talk about science, technology, engineering, and math, are there truly four individual, separate subject areas or can there be overlap? Is it advantageous if these subjects are segregated or can education benefit when these four subjects are somehow linked?

Interactive Learning

Schools have found an alternative way to equip children with flexible and adaptive skills by allowing them to learn through playing interactives and videogames. In the hands of a skilled teacher, interactives can engage students in ways that a textbook cannot. A great amount of research has gone into the effectiveness of using video games in the classroom. From giving students the ability to deeply analyze and interact with material to providing immediate feedback, video games create learning environments that define clear goals, encourage motivation, and scaffold learning to meet the individual needs of each student. The teacher then provides the interpretation and the ability to help the student plan and move forward in their...
