This past year, rolled out a 7-10 1:1 environment in our school district. We looked at different devices, the acceptable use policies, insurance, tech tools, teacher training, created a 3-5 year plan, did everything we could think of to cover all bases. It was not until the semester started we realized we forgot something, training for students.
Sure students had used Google Apps for Education, they had used laptops in the lab, they know their way around the internet, but the students had never experienced how to use these tools together within a non-lab environment, not to mention daily. We needed a bootcamp. We needed to step back and train students how to use and apply these tools. We needed not to push forward but to stop and educate students on this new educational method.
