If iPads are coming to your school, you are probably searching for answers — and you need them fast. Or perhaps you are a parent who would like to understand how mobile device technologies can change your child’s education experience?
Going One to One: Lessons learned from a true one to one iPad implementation, by Principal Jon Euting with Anne Stephenson, will help get you where you want to go. You’ll find answers to your questions, items to consider and practical tips, all arising from the experiences of Principal Euting, his staff and their students implementing one-to-one in their elementary school in Wausau, Wisconsin. If you are in the early stages of providing iPads to your students, you’ll be able to launch your program much more smoothly by absorbing the “lessons learned” provided in this book.
Going One to One will equip you with valuable information and guidance in a thoughtful, straightforward and enjoyable way.
