Some of you have noticed that CASTLE has a new blog: 1to1 Schools. We’re excited about this new venture, which is meant to highlight news, stories, videos, and other resources related to elementary and secondary 1:1 laptop programs.
1to1 Schools is a group blog. For example, check out Nick Sauers’ series on using John Kotter’s 8–stage change process as a model framework for schools that are considering 1:1. Or his post on banning boredom, not laptops. Nick and I also have been on the road with our Flip camcorders, making videos of educators who are involved in laptop programs (see, e.g., our chats with Wynn Draper-Bryant and Marge Beatty).
She also wrote recently about how laptops are NOT for listening.
The blog is a work in progress - and like many new blogs we’re still working on finding our voice - so please contact us if you have suggestions. If you’d like to be a contributor (or know someone else who’d be a good writer for us) please let us know that too.
