Our first #PowerUpEd Chat

Educators are excited about going 1:1. Many of them were able to join us for a Twitter chat Monday night. Our conversations ranged from dream projects now that we have 1:1 to very practical things we can change about the way we use class time and home time.  Educators shared concerns including the different ways devices are used in high and low socioeconomic schools, the uneven distribution of 1:1 programs and the need for quality professional development. If you missed the chat you can check out the Storify Archive linked below and join us next month on September 28, 2015 at 6:00 PM Pacific time when we will be chatting about Frequent Freakouts, the things that worry teachers the most about moving to 1:1 teaching and learning.

Over and over, in each of our conversations, it has come back to the same core values: what makes a 1:1 classroom really flourish is sound instructional design and purposeful use of technology.
