The Power of Educational Technology: My iPad Adventure | 1:1 and BYOD | Scoop.it

"It is hard to budget for a future iPad program when you aren't sure you really want one. The difficulty is that this is all based on the success of the program. It may be that we don't think iPads are right for us or there may be some newer technology that we think is even better. At this point I'm taking this journey one step at a time. I can't quite see the end of the road, but I'm confident each step will bring me closer."

#BYOTchat | A web site for the #BYOTchat twitter chat

"The idea of #BYOTchat developed from my school district’s 1:1 iPad Committee.  We realized that although the iPad is a powerful educational tool, it was not within our school’s financial capabilities to outfit each student with iPads.  Our committee then shifted towards favoring BYOT as the our 1:1 mobile learning solution.

Then came the reality.  The reality that we didn’t know what to do next.  Even though our school’s campuses were already wifi, we knew we had to do more than just tell students to bring devices."

In full disclosure, I helped put together the site and my company, OunceIT is hosting the site. That said, full credit for the #BYOTchat goes to its created, @stevehayes_RB60

Reflecting on two years of 1:1 [guest post] | Dangerously Irrelevant

Reflecting on two years of 1:1 [guest post] | Dangerously Irrelevant | 1:1 and BYOD | Scoop.it
Beginning in the 2010-2011 school year, our school went through a number of transformations and changes, all aimed at enhancing the quality of the learning and teaching within our building. We adapted a 5 x 3 trimester schedule providing longer class periods and a lower student-to-teacher ratio. We added a house system separating the student body into six different houses mixed by age. Through a partnership with Apple, we implemented a 1:1 laptop program with our students receiving MacBooks. Below are five lessons we learned and the two biggest struggles we continue to face.

I say 1:1, you say…- Educational Collaborators

I say 1:1, you say…- Educational Collaborators | 1:1 and BYOD | Scoop.it

This is a well written piece, so I will let it speak for itself:

 

"When considering a 1:1 program at your school there are numerous things to consider. While you can visit school, attend conferences and read all of the available research, not two programs are alike. Don’t be afraid to involve people from within various areas in you school in the process and where needed bring in some help from the outside.
As long as you keep you learning goals in mind and let them drive you decisions you will always end up in the right place."

Eyes wide shut. If you're building a 1:1 laptop program you may already be behind the curve. - A Stick in the Sand

"If we think this trend to tablets of one kind or another will continue--and I for one do--then we need weigh this carefully as we look at how we deploy devices in K12 schools."

Sweden debuts first classroom-less school | SmartPlanet

Sweden debuts first classroom-less school | SmartPlanet | 1:1 and BYOD | Scoop.it

Education scholars have long been experimenting with tactics to facilitate learning in the classroom. Are kids more likely to take in knowledge when at desks arranged in tidy rows? When divided into smaller groups? Perhaps when sitting in a circle on the floor? Now, a freethinking school in Stockholm, Sweden wants to take the classroom out of the picture altogether.

 

Telefonplan, one of 30 schools from the Swedish education company Vittra, has done away with the concept of the classroom completely. Designed by architects at Rosan Bosch, the school consists of loosely designed “spaces” in which students can come and go.
