One to One Netbook Program : 

One to One Netbook Program Join us on this journey to better prepare your students for their future… It is really not about the laptops. It’s about what the 1:1 laptops enable in terms of new ways of teaching and learning.

Slide 2: 

Initially, this is what we thought a 1:1 program would look like, we were concerned…

Slide 3: 

But this is what we now See as a 1:1 classroom

Common concerns and considerations : 

Common concerns and considerations But what about handwriting and working with pencils, using blocks to count and playing with other kids? How much will it cost? Why can’t I bring my own laptop to school? What if the netbook gets lost or broken? Can I use it on my Internet at home?

Changes in teaching & Learning : 

Changes in teaching & Learning “Unlimited” access to distant experts, collaboration, mentors, communities of practice, shared virtual environments Ubiquitous 1-to-1 computing: Wireless devices infusing resources from the real objects; intelligent contexts

Slide 6: 

But…. Why not just stick with Desktop Computers?

Slide 9: 

If we can google it, should we teach it? Imagine a world in which every single person is given free access to the sum of all human knowledge. We are there now! Wikipedia is now considered more accurate that the Encyclopedia Britannica!

What the research tells us… : 

Students: · write more extensively with improved quality · have increased engagement in learning · are more interested in learning · focus on improving their performance · work collaboratively, as they are more willing to share their work and help each other · engage more in self-directed learning · have greater self confidence and self esteem · have greater ICT skills · improve their research skills · are more enthusiastic and have fun learning · improve problem solving and critical thinking skills · are engaged in more project-based work · enjoy learning actively. What the research tells us…

What the research also tells us… : 

Baldwin (1999) … students reported spending less time watching television and more time on homework. Substantially more time is spent on science and mathematics knowledge deepening in comparison to what has been found in studies that focus on non-1:1 laptop settings (Ravitz, Wong, & Becker, 1999; Russell, O’Brien,Bebell, & O’Dwyer, 2003). What the research also tells us…
