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…"

"I am experimenting with a wiki during the last quarter to give my students an opportunity to write their own textbook. They have been told that next year's students will be using the site. So far, they are really excited about posting articles.…"

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…"

Deron Durflinger replied to Matt Guthrie's discussion 1:1 Laptop Action Steps in the group Edtech
"Matt, We are always looking to partner up with other districts. What do you have in mind? We are going to do a collaborative project with a school in New Jersey, Canada, and other schools in IA. We are also a part of international schools…"

Giselda Aparecida dos Santos replied to Matt Guthrie's discussion 1:1 Laptop Action Steps in the group Edtech
"Yes, Matt I completely agree. We do have to start right now and be together with students learning and sharing these experiences. @rliberni just posted the edchat summary: Are 1:1 Laptop programs the future of education? How do they change the way…"

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…"

Giselda Aparecida dos Santos replied to Matt Guthrie's discussion 1:1 Laptop Action Steps in the group Edtech
"Hi Matt! Well I don't know if I have a different context here in Brazil but I think that the most important here, isn’t the tool itself – a laptop, a smartphone – but its use, the purpose of it. Tech is the mean not the…"

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…"
