Chapter 2: Communication and Workflow
Chapter 2 opens with a visit to a seventh grade science class to show how a good learning management system (LMS) really helps a 1:1 classroom run smoothly. The rest of the chapter addresses other suggestions for communication, digital citizenship and work flow. There is an example of a teacher working through a work flow solution for her classroom and a review of some tools that help with work flow in the classroom. The second half of the chapter is rich in suggestions about the logistics of running a digital classroom from organization to monitoring student work and ends with a review of the changing roles of teachers and students in 1:1 classrooms.
