John Swett Elementary's 5th grade went 1:1 starting the 2013/14 school year.  Students are provided with their own Acer laptop which they use throughout the day.  One of the most valuable tools we have with being 1:1 is Google Apps for Education.  We are able to assign, monitor, share, grade, research, explore, differentiate, assess (and so much more) without ever using a piece of paper.  We have enjoyed being teachers and learners with this process and are regularly impressed with the inherent technology skills of our digital natives.

We created this site to share a sampling of the tools and activities we've used this year.  Student samples are authentic. We are all exploring this new path in education together and hope that you will also share any tools and tricks you've found useful in your classrooms.  Thank you.
