Developing a 'Yes, They Can!' Attitude: Introducing 1:1 Tech into the Primary Classroom

  • Northern Indiana Service Center 56535 Magnetic Dr Mishawaka, IN 46545 United States (map)

You've been told you're going 1:1, handed devices to use with your students, and are wondering: Where do I start? What do I do with them? When do I use them? Where do I keep them? Why do I need them? How might I do use them the right way?

When integrating 1:1 devices to any grade level, there are sure to be excitements and challenges. However, with primary and elementary students, where do you begin when devices have been nothing but toys to these young minds since they were born?

This workshop will focus attention on some of the critical questions that teachers are asking when told that they are going 1:1 and offer support and resources to help them make the transition not only smooth, but transformative and exciting!  You will develop practical and useful strategies to help you be an effective and efficient 1:1 classroom teacher.

In this workshop we will:

  • Build your 1:1 integration plan from the ground up

  • Decide, create, and prepare for expectations, rules, and support you will give to your students as they learn to use these devices in your school and classrooms

  • Develop an understanding of online edtech tools you can use with your students to begin creating engaging digital projects and units of study

  • Create ways you can use edtech to automate and organize your every day teaching procedures

  • Much, much, more!
