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 Integrationist, Ankeny Community School District
I've taught elementary and secondary, and have been doing technology integration for about 6 years. The most important thing I can do is to support those teachers who are learning and using something new that will help students learn.
