Going 1:1 in the Classroom: Realities, Tips, Tricks, & Strategies for Success

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Getting tech into the hands of every student is the dream, and when it becomes a reality it's exciting. But then reality sets in and you begin to wonder how to manage the new freedom students feel and how to do things in class with these new tools. In this session, you'll get an idea of what a 1:1 classroom looks like and how it functions, and I'll share ways to manage and maximize your 1:1 classroom by sharing my experiences, challenges, and strategies. We'll talk about everything from arranging your classroom to controlling the chaos (sort of) to how to integrate your Chromebooks into everyday classroom life. When you leave, you'll feel more confident and excited about getting these incredible tools into the hands of your students while maintaining your sanity and inspiring their learning.
