Darcy1968 Help. I am continuing my series of posts. Question: what are 10 things a 'school' can do in preparation for 1:1 laptops in classrooms? #L4L
ictguy @ Darcy1968 The big thing teachers need 4 '1 to 1' is being open 2 new ways of learning 4 students and teachers. It's all about the attitude!
TheDramaTeacher @ Darcy1968 involve students - how can the L4L aid their learning.
melissagiddins @ Darcy1968 Identify some 'early adopters' to run ahead of the pack. Start PD now in small bite-sized chunks. Create an 'ideas bank'.
ictguy @ Darcy1968 When talking '1 to1' – Will Richardson's Unlearning curve comes to mind! http://bit.ly/47izoP
stuhasic @ Darcy1968 #L4L School needs to come to consensus on all the policy issues. How do laptops fit in the current UAP and Discipline policies?
pilgram @ Darcy1968 1:1 Laptops- eSafety and responsible use no1 priority #L4L
stuhasic @ Darcy1968 #L4L School needs to arrange accom. for the netbooks pool and the on-site L4L officer. In the Job ads on 3/6/09!!
Lilylauren @ Darcy1968 a school can refuse to accept a deficit model of teacher learning & understand that in 2009 it is not on to ignore technology
onepmb @ darcy1968 . #10 – Current and future in"fast"ructure- fast as in get on it now and always stay ahead of its curve
Cramster @ Darcy1968 Educate faculties about social learning sites, encourage students to embrace social learning
piphowell @ Darcy1968 #L4L set up shared Delicious account for each faculty. Share web 2 tools, learning objects and sites easily among faculty staff
oliverquinlan @ Darcy1968 Are you doing a blog post on 1:1 laptops? Be very interested to see your thoughts/findings.
wotsa @ Darcy1968 the 'school' could make opportunities for stakeholders to air their feelings, fears and ideas. Unearth some nuggets.
TheDramaTeacher @ Darcy1968 encourage reluctant staff to attend DYNAMIC presentations showing L4L in action, model positive practices, relevant to teach KLA
Lofts1964 @ Darcy1968 , create mentor groups in year 9. 'Guide on the Side'. They will be the champions. Just like my year 8 class showed me a few tips.
Lofts1964 @ Darcy1968 ensure you survey your parents, on use at home & school. Find the 'champions' amongst your parents. They will be handy.
pryorcommitment @ Darcy1968 Only say 'No' when there's a very good reason not to say YES
intrepidteacher @ Darcy1968 Create school ethos, where teachers also use tech ubiquitously. Hard to do...
melissagiddins @ Darcy1968 have a policy for what to do when kids turn up without batteries charged, forget their laptops, etc.
pilgram @ Darcy1968 Collaboration, Cooperation, Sharing- through projector, learning platform etc. eg Pedagogy #L4L
neilyc @ Darcy1968 Obvious things like, extra powerpoints, pervasive wireless, secure lockups, smooth desks, screen-friendly lighting #L4L
Deangroom @ Darcy1968 http://bit.ly/9kSle #L4L - Word cloud of 'students must/must not' policy - spot the learning worlds ... shiesh.
SimonBorgert @ Darcy1968 teach from the back of the classroom
john_larkin @ Darcy1968 Have a supply of 'images' so that a machine can be rapidly rebirthed.
digitalmaverick @ Darcy1968 1 thing would be for them to remember when it is best NOT to use a computer :-)
<ul><li>melissagiddins @ Darcy1968 </li></ul><ul><li>plan for offline and online use </li></ul><ul><li>be ready with plans and </li></ul><ul><li>activities for both - prevent offline </li></ul><ul><li>from meaning 'not used'. </li></ul>
melissagiddins @ Darcy1968 School policy for battery charging. Work out where they live – in school bags when bags are outside rooms in prac classes?
john_larkin @ Darcy1968 Develop a logical labelling system for each laptop and its specific peripherals. Count them out. Count them in.
SimonBorgert @ Darcy1968 ensure that arrangements are made to cater for students that have uncharged/unservicable laptop for all classes during the day
