Rob Schoonveld replied to Matt Guthrie's discussion Hands On vs. Digital Labs in the group 21st Century Science Educators
"I teach 8th grade science and have just been working with my students 1:1 on Chromebooks.  It seems that the desire to move up the SAMR model over the next few years may at times be in conflict with the inquiry/hands-on/ experiential science…"

Sue Lyon-Jones replied to Matt Guthrie's discussion 1:1 Laptop Action Steps in the group Edtech
"Hi Matt, I've taught adult learners 1:1 (with PC's) for a number of years, and I agree that the infrastructure can often be a big stumbling block. Trying to teach ICT-based lessons on computers that freeze up whenever learners attempt to…"

Giselda Aparecida dos Santos replied to Matt Guthrie's discussion 1:1 Laptop Action Steps in the group Edtech

Matt Guthrie replied to Matt Guthrie's discussion 1:1 Laptop Action Steps in the group Edtech
"$$ is always going to be the smoke screen issue. I think infrastructure will be a bigger obstacle than purchasing the actual hw IF people are willing to sacrifice in other areas. We have the issue in our school that we were wired to work just fine…"

Matt Guthrie replied to Matt Guthrie's discussion 1:1 Laptop Action Steps in the group Edtech
"Giselda, thanks for all the links and thoughts. I don't think the context is different. I think you have a good point in that the faculty need to experience and own the usefulness a 1:1 initiative (of any type device) can provide. Then maybe…"

David Kapuler replied to Matt Guthrie's discussion 1:1 Laptop Action Steps in the group Edtech
"I'm in a similar situation where 1 to 1 looks to be on the horizon in my district. Money is a huge obstacle as well as infrastructure and staffing/resources. One possibility that has been brought up is instead of spending money on laptops for…"
