High School 1:1 Technology Initiative

The school I work in is currently in the beginning of a 1:1 initiative. The theme that keeps coming back to me as we meet and discuss the possible changes to our high school learning is the necessity to really take the time to implement a team approach to curriculum development for this initiative.

I recently attended a Leadership Conference for Technology Leaders in Massachusetts and a dominant theme in conversation was the necessity for getting staff on the same page with curriculum. The thing that struck me the most about the attitudes of leaders was the pre-planning and professional development which was necessary to get teachers prepared for 1:1 technology initiatives.
