Making the Shift to 1
Wherever you are on the path to 1:1 teaching and learning, you need a guide that can help you make the best use of the powerful technology available in today’s classrooms. In this inspiring and practical book, Diana Neebe and Jen Roberts draw on research and their extensive experience working with teachers across subject areas and year levels to share the keys to success when teaching with a computer or tablet for every student.
This is the book secondary teachers need to understand the changes in pedagogy, planning, classroom organisation, time management and collaboration that will help them be successful in a 1:1 environment. Whether providing immediate and detailed feedback to student writers, giving voice to quiet learners or creating more time for actual work in a jam-packed school day, Neebe and Roberts show teachers how communication, differentiation and other effective practices can be powered up with personalised technology.
Throughout the book, Neebe and Roberts coach teachers through their initial concerns about technology integration, offer advice about avoiding common problems and encourage innovation. Using detailed classroom examples, questions and suggestions, they provide a framework for shaping the transformation of a traditional classroom into a Studio-centred, technology-rich learning environment. Readers will come away with a clear sense of how a fully implemented 1:1 classroom operates.
Staff developers can use this book as a long-term program for teachers who are adapting to 1:1 classrooms. They also draw on the companion study guide for additional discussion questions and prompts.
