    Read the research; don’t reinvent the wheel.
    Test before you commit
    Let kids and faculty play with the hardware before you commit to it.
    Pilot in the classroom first if you can.
    No hardware is perfect.
    Use teachers and students to help anticipate problems.
    Budget for warranty and repair needs.
    Replacement may be cheaper than repair.
    Survey kids for what works – F11, hiding the ribbon, etc.
  • Beyond the halo effect

    Beyond:

    Kids who get tech soar
  • Still looking for answers
    Fading halo effect…
    Assessment of program (no baseline; minimal data before program)
    Quickly evolving K-12 tech curriculum
    Finding best support model K-12
