Getting Your Entire School Community On Board With (1:1) iPads

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Bringing mobile devices into schools is a tremendous change for the students and the adults in a school community. In order to gain both momentum and support for these initiatives to succeed we need to be transparent and inclusive of all of the stakeholders in the district. We need to continually reinforce why we have undertaken these efforts which are so foreign to parents who had a vastly different experience. In addition, we need to help guide staff, students, and parents through this new territory where mobile devices are looked upon as tools of instruction rather than tools of distraction. Ensuring that the school community understands that this is a instructional initiative and not just a large technology purchase is imperative. This session will provide concrete examples of how one school has kept all stakeholders in the loop in and built positive momentum in doing this important work. It will also provide an opportunity for participants to ask questions and discuss best practice.
