1:1 in the Cloud - How Choosing a Cloud-based Solution Impacts Student Learning

Session Description

In The Cloud: How Choosing a Cloud-based Solution Impacts Student Learning

Leyden High School District #212 in suburban Chicago has piloted the use of Chromebooks this school year and will be issuing a Chromebook for all 3500 of our students starting in the Fall of 2012. We see this move to the web producing the following trends: a move away from handing in papers towards sharing documents, instead of submitting an assignment - publishing to the web, and instead of working cooperatively to complete - collaborating to create.

The presentation will provide schools with an overview of our "digital evolution", insights from teachers regarding moving student learning to the cloud, and most important a conversation with our students and how this paradigm shift has impacted their learning.
