Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Every journey requires a great guide, this is the guide for 1:1 deployments. Walk away with everything needed to begin, expand or improve your program, from policy to procedures, parent handouts to student expectations.

The power inherent in 1:1 deployments to enhance student learning is unmistakable. Implemented with thought and purpose the 1:1 learning environment supports student equity throughout an institution. These successful 1:1 deployments don’t occur by accident, rather planning, organizational commitment, long term vision, and community partnerships are crafted to create a sustainable program.

Take a journey through the 1:1 galaxy to discover the paths to successfully implement a 1:1 device program; from visioning, pre-planning, training, implementation stages to the deployment, reflection and iteration for success this session will visit the various education locations that create the ultimate map for 1:1 learning. Leveraging technology at each stage of the process, the session will demonstrate how innovation can ensure a quality learning experience creating equity for all students. The session explores the power of participant-driven professional learning, of engaging the community stakeholders and utilizing personalized tools to evaluate and iterate student learning.

While the answer to life, the universe, and everything is 42, this session seeks to determine if the long sought after question to that answer is, “How do you implement a successful, equitable and sustainable 1:1 device program?”

Come to be inspired, leave empowered. Your students deserve the best - let’s learn from others’ challenges and successes.
