1-to-1 Essentials Program | Common Sense Media

1-to-1 Essentials Program | Common Sense Media:

As technology becomes cheaper and as we move closer and closer to Common Core implementation where the standardized test becomes computerized, more schools and districts will be moving to a 1 to 1 program either through netbooks, tablets, or laptops.  Having a plan, managing the devices, commuication with parents, teachers and students, and integration of the technology into daily lesson plans are a few of the factors that will determine if your 1 to 1 program will be a success or failure.

Common Sense Media has a in-depth look at how a district or school can work through these issues in a 3 phase process.

Phase 1 is Envision.  Here is the foundation work to make your program a success.
Phase 2 is Communicate.  Begin the process of communication to the key players involved in your 1 to 1 program.
Phase 3 is Implement. They have posters for care and maintenance for a variety of ages, planning calendars  and sample user contracts for a variety of topics.

All phase's have handouts and videos that will be helpful for every teacher, student, parent and administration that are all downloadable and free for educators.
