  • See Charley&apos;s note regarding the 1:1 initiative from Dec 2010 http://blogs.stchristophers.com/1to1/2010/12/07/st-christophers-technology-access-model/
  • https://docs.google.com/a/stcva.org/document/d/1YPeUx9QIbi9SxMhZO3wZIHt4dbMkbljLVy5ZehWdv60/edit?hl=en_US&amp;ndplr=1&amp;hl=en_US&amp;passive=true&amp;go=true&amp;passive_sso=true#
  • Recognition that netbooks didnt provide the optimum user experience.  Increase electrical capacity Increase wifi footprint: access points will be added to every classroom. Goal is to allow every student in each classroom to access online materials concurrently without an interruption in service.
  • Tablet is an exceptional piece of hardware. If the computer is treated properly, it can certainly last 4 or even 5 years. It will be a fine computer for graphic editing and movie production. Some specs: 64 bit OS Win 7 8 GB of RAM Intel I5 processor .6 terabyte drive 512 MB Video Card HDMI out
  • It will happen.  Brian Zollinhofer, MS Instructional Specialist, will be available daily to assist with damaged machines. Loaners will be swapped out and returned ASAP.
  • Dyknow is a software package that are faculty will be using to monitor and collaborate with students.   Image on bottom right corner illustrates a teacher screen with thumbnails showing student screens.
  • Our 1:1 blog will be updated regularly to keep students and parents up to date on issues involving the 1:1 initiative. Parents are encouraged to leave comments.
  • Mrs. Anderson, the 7th grade chair, cited many examples of students using tech to enhance learning. Many of the links will work in a public form because they are connected to personal student files. Mrs. Anderson also extended an invitation to parents if they have a desire to see tech in action in her classroom.
  • Out of the box night. There will be 2 out of the box nights in August.  At this time, students and parents will receive their tablets and instruction on how to use them. Date, time , and location TBD
