Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this visual, immediate gratification world in which we live, 1:1 technology programs seem to be all the rage. Has this improved learning? Yes, information is ubiquitous, but does the plethora of resources equal or even lead to higher achievement? How are critical thinking and interpersonal skills affected? Come to this session and learn why our school, through thoughtful discussion, came to the conclusion that a 1:1 program actually went against our mission of excellence. In our classes, students work in centers, often on computers, but just as often, engaged in meaningful face to face dialogue. Critical thinking becomes the focus, technology just a tool, which in turn enables deep learning. This session will allow time for audience conversation and debate.
