I am honored and humbled to be named my school’s Apple Technology Specialist. We are going one to one in September, providing each Freshman with an 11” MacBook Air. I have been a proponent of one to one connected learning for many years and am thrilled that we are taking this big step.
I will be responsible for working with teachers and students in the use of the Macs and the use of them for learning. This is going to be a project for which I have been preparing for years. Ever since my first PLP session, I have been immersed in modern learning. But I feel I have so much more to learn and that this will be an excellent learning experience for me.
So, I am asking you who read this to leave me some comments.
I am very aware that simply putting computers into the kids and teachers’ hands will not change anything. What advice do you have for starting a successful 1 to 1 program? If you have done this, please share your experiences
Our infrastructure is solid. We have an excellent IT person, and a very supportive administration. I will be writing regularly about my journey in this new position, but this is the first post. I welcome your comments. And I thank you in advance for any advice that you can give. Thanks for stopping by. .
