We’ve formed a committee at Lincoln Lutheran to make some decisions about how and when we want to implement a 1:1 (It’s a ratio, read it as, “One to one.”) initiative. That’s where every student at a school has a tablet or laptop and they use them to make the learnification more hard core.
Well, we’re sort of up against an odd deadline. Past experience suggests that in the next few weeks lots of our parents are going to buy tablets and laptops for their kids. But we’d sort of like to steer them toward devices that would work reasonably well at school. But we’re not really ready to make any sort of formal announcement about a 1:1 initiative. But we don’t want parents to purchase devices that won’t work at school. But lots of decisions have to be made before we can move forward. But parents would be upset if we announced in January what types of devices would work well.
The upshot is that, while the 1:1 committee can’t make any formal recommendations, the technology coordinator (who shall remain me) can make some informal recommendations.
The reason I’m telling you all this is that I was hoping you’d check out the recommendations and report back:
