Looking to Create 21st-Century Classrooms? | District Administration Magazine | 1:1 and BYOD | Scoop.it

This post doesn't explicity refer to 1:1 or BYOD, but the idea certainly applies. How do you institute a 1:1 or BYOD program when there is resistance? From the post:

 

"What do you hear when people say, "Yeah, but?" Resistance? If you listen differently, you can hear opportunity."

All of Natick's high schoolers, eighth graders to get MacBooks

All of Natick's high schoolers, eighth graders to get MacBooks | 1:1 and BYOD | Scoop.it

"Starting this fall [2011], Natick schools will be rolling out a $2.27 million initiative to ensure that every high schooler and eighth grader has a MacBook and knows how to use it."

 

I found some useful morsels in the linked PDF/Keynote presentation (here: http://ounce.it/zlB8BC ).

 

Apparently, Natick is spending rainy day money to expand the program, too - more info here: http://ounce.it/wdh8KS 

 

Thank you to a colleague at CSW for showing this to me. -JA

Waking Up From My iPad Dream

One educator's thoughts on the pros of BYOD vs an iPad 1:1 program. From the post: "If the process of integrating technology into a curriculum is to be both natural and seamless, then both students and teachers should be able to use the digital devices that they are most comfortable with."

Searching for Searchers | Education Recoded | Big Think | 1:1 and BYOD | Scoop.it
This post defines two different types of people: searchers and planners, and it goes on to give a short case study of how the two affected the rollout of a 1:1 program. Thank you Jim Lerman @jimlerman) for sharing this with me. -JA From the post: One district I know had a clear reform plan for 1:1 computing. The leadership purchased computers for their secondary level students; however, they did not have the full support of the teaching staff. The computers arrived only days before school began, thus the year began with no professional development for the staff and minimal instruction for the students.

I don't know if this post is an perfect fit for the 1:1/BYOD topic, but I decided to err on the side of YES. The links from this post are part of the reason I have included it, though in full disclosure I read half of the linked articles and skimmed half, saving them for later reading. I'd love to get some feedback: yea or nay? -JA

"Schools have had computer labs for year, but now one North Texas school district is allowing middle and high school students to use their own smartphones, iPads and laptops in class.The program is called "BYOD" - Bring Your Own Device."

Characteristics of 1:1 Schools and Communities - 1 to 1 Schools

Characteristics of 1:1 Schools and Communities - 1 to 1 Schools | 1:1 and BYOD | Scoop.it
The ini­tial part of my study attempted to ana­lyze the char­ac­ter­is­tics of one-to-one schools. The goal was to iden­tify char­ac­ter­is­tics of one-to-one schools that were very dif­fer­ent (sta­tis­ti­cally sig­nif­i­cant) from non-one-to-one schools. Because I didn’t want the char­ac­ter­is­tics to be impacted as a result of a school going one-to-one, I used data from a year that schools were not one-to-one (2007). Here are some of those char­ac­ter­is­tics that were very dif­fer­ent between one-to-one and non-one-to-one schools.

Around the Corner-MGuhlin.org: Are You Ready for BYOD? | 1:1 and BYOD | Scoop.it
Thank you to Lisa Nielsen (@InnovativeEdu) for sharing this with me. There is no excerpt that summarizes the whole post, but this quote spoke to me: "One of the ironies of being in a “positional” leadership role – a director, a manager, a supervisor – is that one quickly finds out how little power one actually has. Ordering a thing to be done or a philosophy to be believed is usually about as productive as ordering a two-year-old to eat his peas – you might eventually get the peas in the kid, but the mess will be so bad, you’ll wonder why you started the process. Even “positional” leaders soon find they can lead best by example, with humility, and with common sense."

The future of ed tech - A Stick in the Sand

There is little, and increasingly less, need for stadardization of hard- and software in classrooms. In principle, it seems to me, telling my Grade 11 TOK class they have to do their work in OneNote is like telling them they have to all write using a Hilroy HB pencil and 20# stock. Why?
