Iowa 1:1 Institute has ended
The Iowa 1:1 Institute exists to:
  • Help the Midwest’s 1:1 districts learn from each other about innovative teaching, learning, and administrative practices that are occurring in their districts;
  • Build excitement and ‘buzz’ around 1:1 laptop computing initiatives in the Midwest; and
  • Help others who are interested in 1:1 computing learn more about how to get started and be successful.
The institute is open to anyone interested in 1:1 laptop computing initiatives in P-12 schools, whether they currently are working in such a program or just want to learn more.

Technology Integration Coach
Boone Community Schools
During my years in the classroom, I taught 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grades .  I am currently serving my district as the elementary technology integrationist and STEM coordinator for pre-k through 4th grade. I am passionate about the purposeful integration of technology, fostering innovation with students through STEM and computer science education. Franklin Elementary in Boone was one of twelve Computer Science is Elementary schools, in partnership with the Governor's Stem Council and the Iowa Department of Education. I served as one of the project leads for this. I love having the opportunity to help teachers try new innovative practices in their classrooms as well as developing innovative problem solving with students!
