An interesting post here on whether schools should adopt 1:1 and the mindset with which they need to approach such an adoption. Much of the post resonates with me because one of my concerns about my own participation in the 1:1 is that I am still teaching mostly the same way but with a more expensive tool at my students’ disposal (the $1,000 pencil approach mentioned in the article; I might shift that to the $1,000 notebook; my students often love taking notes on their laptop but I wonder if that’s what they’re for). I have had moments during the year when I felt like I was maximizing the use of the laptops but my goal is to have more of those moments as I become more facile with the pedagogy of a 1:1 environment.
