I am currently attempting to formalize a plan for mobile device deployment and could use some help. We are a high school only district and we have had some success with ipad pilots. We are now getting chromebooks to play with and I would love to be able to make a standard, formal procedure for such projects. As I am reinventing the wheel, I would greatly appreciate any help, advice or existing plans in place. Thank you very much.
Be sure to start by writing a vision and mission for integration. Ask stakeholders to take part in this process so that you have a good idea of what the front line teachers know about the students.
Then assess your infrastructure and see what is possible. Going one-to-one anything without reliable connections is a frustrating waste of money, time, and man power.
Once you have these in place the decisions on technology should answer itself. Keep in mind that you will need to build in on going and appropriate professional development to support the plan. Appropriate PD should teach them how to integrate into their own discipline. Tech use is never one-size fits all.
