SpeEdChange: When rethinking the school itself... [This sounds so familiar, validates much of our thinking.]
"Holland Christian decided a few years ago to become a 1:1 school...realized that changing student tools was just one part of rethinking...needed to rebuild & reorganize - new tools would only be meaningful if educational environment altered in ways that let the tools really change things...dropping text books for authentic materials & acceptance of multiple - & student chosen - ways of demonstrating knowledge...rebuilding classrooms so there was no "front"...1:1 initiative that had been shaped by a commitment to rethinking school, & centering the form of school on what students need now - collaboration, access to & effective use of global information, trust in students, belief in leveraging the world of today rather than avoiding it, and universal design..."The equipment really isn't important, we've learned to embrace the student control and interaction & we'll keep doing that.""
