How do we prepare every teacher to maximize learning when every student has a device in hand? As districts increase computing capacity, there is an assumption that faculty will adapt. Often, “adapting” means that what teachers used to do analog, they now do digitally, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they are reimagining learning for the new landscape. In this session, facilitators share effective and replicable workshop ideas that will help faculty adapt their teaching for the 1:1 environment.
