If you have ever considered a 1:1 initiative or want to expand a pilot project, come get a blueprint for success for 1:1 initiatives in our public schools. With the New York State SMART Schools initiative, we have an opportunity to transform learning in our classrooms and an overview of the SMART School initiative will be presented. The focus will shift to one aspect of the SMART initiative and look directly at 1:1 Learning. We will discuss technology and why some technology is better than others. We will cover basic network requirements. We will look at costs, financial resources, and how you can actually save money by going 1:1. Deployment planning and strategies will be touched on. Most importantly, we will present considerations regarding the purpose of a 1:1 initiative and what you hope to accomplish, because going 1:1 should be all about learning and not so much about really cool technology. Lockport City School District has stepped into a K-6 1:1 initiative over the last 6 years and studied the results on academic performance. Data will be presented and discussed and proven strategies for success will be shared. If you are considering a 1:1 initiative or just want to be in the know about SMART and transformational learning, come join us for an hour packed with useful information.
