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 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...
