The Transformed Curriculum

How can a one-to-one program transform student learning?  What are the key elements in programs that are successfully changing outcomes for students?  Whether you are in the planning stages, pilot testing, or implementing a school-wide one-to-one program, come meet with other teachers and administrators and share information, questions, and answers about starting, running, and maintaining a successful one-to-one computing initiative.

Program Highlights

Keynote: Jim Lengel -- A Day in the Life.
Jim will follow a day in the life of a student and a teacher, in an Education 3.0 world.

Morning Sessions:  The Transformed Curriculum
Meet schools that have been running 1:1 programs, and find out how their program has changed what it is like to be a student.

Lunchtime Mash-Up
Sit with educators whom you otherwise may never have met. You will come away with new contacts, peer mentors, and meet others who are part of the growing support network of 1:1 educators in Vermont. 

Afternoon Session:  The Device - Problem or Solution???
Join in conversations about the experiences and challenges of 1:1 programs in a device-centric format.
