Rochester City Schools, Rochester, NY

Project Goal:  Support the Rochester City Schools rollout of their 1:1 Chromebook program.

Description:  I had the opportunity to talk with leadership, with the technology department and present a dinner keynote to the teachers of the District.  All presentations were specficially tailored to the audience, but explore the impact of 1:1 technology, leadership implications, what it meant for IT as teachers and kids had greater connectivity, and what it meant for learning.

What's Interesting?  How can 1:1 be a catalyst for school improvement.  What will these resources mean for teaching and learning and engagement.  How will this not become just one more thing, but the thing that changes their landscape and creates a learning environment that excites and challenges kids and improves what they do, and how they move through their school system, ultimately towards successful graduation.
