What It Means To Go 1:1

Students working toward a career in teaching have likely heard a lot of talk about 1:1 classrooms. For those unfamiliar, a one-to-one classroom, often written as 1:1, refers to a pedagogical ideology in which devices are provided for every student at a one-to-one ratio. This idea is catching on in school districts across the country, and helps better prepare students with the tech skills that will make them competitive in the workforce. 

It's imperative not only that educators have an understanding of this technology (whether it be tablets, laptops or otherwise), but also that they have a strong grasp on the best practices of going 1:1. Effectively using devices in any classroom can be a challenge, and as more and more learning environments become fully blended, teachers will have to develop new strategies for fostering student engagement and making the most of their technology.
