Webinar – Lessons from the Trenches with 1:1
Digital Wish has placed one-computer-per-child initiatives in 30 schools across the state of Vermont. From fear to excitement, from ordering to deployment, from research to realization, hear about the success and challenges of the journey. We’ll describe the surprising paradigm shift witnessed in each school and the reasoning why a 1:1 program is absolutely essential. Explore the importance of a technology initiative in the context of the global economy and our own children’s future. Then we’ll share the heart warming successes and often humorous tragedies that shaped our initiative.
