Tech Transformation: 1:1 programmes and personalized learning

Tech Transformation: 1:1 programmes and personalized learning | On education | Scoop.it

"It's HOW the technology is being used, rather than WHAT technology is being used that leads to personalized learning."

I must agree with Maggie on that 1:1 programs can support a personalized learning environment. I would add that in a personalized learning environment, helping learners develop the skills so that they can choose and use the technology for a task is key to help them become self-directed and independent. In an effective 1:1 program, each learner would have their own set of tools and apps to support their learning.

Maggie and Kathleen express my perspectives as well; phemonal blog and insight! It is difficult for me to assist a school and hear them say they have chosen to only adopt google apps or iPad apps, or have chosen between Apple or Android, or Mac rather than Windows...this stifles learning opportunities in many ways. Just as adults have learning prefernces and technology preferences (for work and personal use), our students can learn to make the same self-assessments about their own learning, and choose technology that works best for them and helps them succeed in school.
