Jan Schwartz's curator insight, May 24, 2013 8:57 AM

The idea of having a class 'searcher' is brilliant!  This rotating responsibility gives students a chance to practice their skills in the classroom without having to add to the curriculum.

Meryl Jaffe, PhD's comment, May 29, 2013 4:57 AM

5 Teacher Secrets for Managing the One-to-One Classroom | Being Online | Scoop.it

"Chances are your first or second answer is classroom management and that’s in the ordinary classroom.  With one-to-one classroom technology integration, classroom management takes on a whole new meaning.  Not only must you manage between 20 and 30 students, their individual learning paths, and the classroom environment, but you must also help them to use technology tools in ways that deepen learning, enhance creativity, and maximize time on task whenever possible. Make no mistake—this is no mean feat!"
