In an effort to address the evolving needs of students in today’s classrooms, many districts in Central Rivers have made the move to a 1:1 environment by increasing student access to technology. Implementing a successful 1:1 environment entails more than just providing devices and equipment. It also involves the creation of a shared vision that involves multiple stakeholders, the development of a plan for ongoing professional development as well as a plan for implementation that supports student learning.
The Iowa Area Education Agencies provides an Implementation Timeline for districts when planning and evaluating their 1:1 programs. This timeline includes questions, insights and resources guided by each of the necessary factors for a successful 1:1 environment.
If your district would like more assistance planning or evaluating your 1:1 environment please contact Jerry Schnabel.
