Preparing for a 1:1 learning environment - a pedagogical view

Helen Otway

on Wednesday, 7 April 2010 10:30 - 11:10 in room 211

When thinking about beginning a 1:1 laptop program what do you need to consider?
Hardware?
Software?
Infrastructure?
Support?
Costs?
Yes these are all the practical considerations and are very important. But what scaffolding needs to take place for our learners - teachers and students - to prepare for 1:1 learning?
Learning styles?
Team work vs Independent work?
Confidence?
Digital Citizenship?
Personal Learning skills and attitudes?
These are some of the challenges that started to take shape in our first year of providing our Year 7 Laptop Program. Helen will share the Manor Lakes College story so far and future directions.
