Why do elementary students need 1:1?

1-1 Mobile technology

Technology is ever present and ever changing.  The necessity for students to use technology creatively, authentically, and publicly is now.  Since teachers are advocates for their students, teachers must promote the need for students’ access to technology in their everyday school lives.

To make that change, leaders must have a sense of urgency.  Mobile technology is a matter where teachers, staff, and administrators must act with urgency.  Those who don’t fully commit to the belief that our students need to be creative and authentic will more than likely be the teachers that don’t use the technology in their classrooms.  I believe that all teachers should engage the idea of letting students use technology to learn and show what they’ve learned.  The world is a 24/7, mobile, and connected place.  Our school should be the same.
