Technology is more than just “Computer Class;” it is a literacy that must be threaded throughout the fabric of a school. In a 1:1 environment, you’re preparing students to be responsible citizens of the physical and digital worlds. But it’s easy to get overwhelmed with devices; you have to have a plan for technology that keeps learning at center stage.
In his book, Marcinek discusses:
- Why a 1:1 program is not only achievable but also beneficial and necessary
- How to choose the right devices
- The best ways to prepare teachers through professional development
- Best practices for instruction and personalization in a 1:1 environment
It’s more essential than ever to integrate digital and information literacy into the fabric of our schools. This practical resource will get you started on the journey.
” Marcinek provides a desperately needed resource based on practical experience that will help districts effectively and properly implement 1:1 initiatives.”
—Eric Sheninger, Educational Consultant and Corwin Author, Digital Leadership
“Ultimately, going 1:1 is about fostering a culture of trust and innovation, and this doesn’t happen overnight—you need a strong plan. Marcinek helps leaders get started with a 1:1 implementation, and teaches us how to prepare the entire school community for digital citizenship.”
—Salome Thomas-EL, Award-winning Principal and Author of “The Immortality of Influence”
