- Publisher's Summary
- This book provides school and district leaders with 2 important things: 1) a field tested process and strategies for making the shift from a print to a digital learning environment; and 2) tools for implementing that process. By taking advantage of the constant innovation in the device market and a new generation of open-source resources, the author will show how to affordably transform print school systems into ones that leverage the power of one-to-one computing to become substantially digital and royalty free learning centers. In addition, he will show educators how to create the supporting instructional frameworks required for making the transition to one-to-one pay off for student learning.Divided into 3 sections, the first part of the book makes the case for change by examining the research and todayAes educational context. The second part of the book focuses on the practical strategies needed to get a one-to-one instructional environment in an era of limited financial resources, including open source resources, and Bring Your Own Devices. The final part of the book explores the systemic changes that need to accompany the implementation of one-to-one in order for its promise to become a reality, including curriculum, instruction, assessment, and professional development.
