I read the article and watched the video. I am totally for 1:1. Right now we have about 2 students per desktop or netbook, although our desktops are at end of life, and the netbooks are a bit limited. My concerns are that failing equipment will not be repaired or replaced, updates will be difficult if teachers aren't given enough privileges, and teachers will neglect valuable instructional methods and activities that do not involve computers or iPads.
I came across this article this AM titled: "DAILY INSIGHT: Planning for One-to-One laptops and BYOD" http://www.schoolcio.com/print/50809 I particularly appreciated the down to earth and straight forward strategies of addressing a 1:1 and BYOD as a blended technology approach to the tools and varied opportunities for student learning. This article also outlines the critical steps to address the planning process of a 1:1 and to focus on the vision of "it must be done on purpose and with purpose."
Where are your districts or schools in the planning process for a one-to-one laptop initiative and BYOD? What is working well, what setbacks have you encountered and what solutions have you found to make your program successful?
