  4. ASCD Arias Publication: Encouragement In The Classroom

  8. 1-to-1 at Home: A Parent's Guide to School-Issued Laptops and Tablets

    Managing the digital gadgets, gizmos and games that kids already own is often a challenge, and many parents find that a school-issued 1-to-1 device further disrupts an area in which there are already conflicts. 1-to-1 devices blur the lines between school and home, between work and play, between tool and toy. Many parents could use some help in setting boundaries. Written from the perspective of a family therapist who works to help families get to the heart of complicated matters, this guidebook addresses the home side of 1-to-1 programs. 1-to-1 at Home: A Parent's Guide to School-Issued Laptops and Tablets provides the perspectives of other adults - educators and parents - who have addressed similar challenges.
