What does the research say about school one-to-one computing initiatives?

Today’s resource is a re-issue of an older version. Last November we rolled out our first CASTLE brief. We’ve now got a new, much better template for our briefs so here’s the revised edition, authored by Dr. Nick Sauers, 1to1 Schools, and myself:

If you downloaded the old one, please use this one instead! Our second brief is in the works and, as the CASTLE Briefs web page notes, we’re actively soliciting ideas and authors. If you’re interested, get in touch!

[Continuing what I hope will be a month-long wave of resources for school leaders and the programs that prepare them…]

  1. I have read the brief and found it really informative. I think that technology will become more and more important in education as it offers new ways of study. It’s just that we need to find a balance so as we don’t lose other important parts that “classic” education offers. That balance will help creating a better educational system.

  2. Dr. McLeod,
    My name is Mary Anderson and I am a student at the University of South AL. I’ve been assigned to comment and on your blog this week for my EDM 310 class. Last week we had an assignment to read a past post from you so, I’ve dug through your blog since then for good reads. I really like the concept of CASTLE as I think it can be a wonderful bridge to incorporate both 21st century education and the old fashioned way of teaching which, dare I say, I am still a fan! Don’t get me wrong, I know how important technology is for our young ones but, as a future elementary teacher, I won’t let my classrooms be 100% technology. Hopefully I will build a lesson plan that is 85% technology and 15% old fashioned way of teaching because I still believe that method has it’s perks.
    Thank you for being a devoted resource for educators.

    Mary Anderson

    Also, you may read my final thoughts/comments regarding your blog after midnight on 7/15. Again, thank you 🙂
