  • How a Texas District went Google: New Caney Helps Close the Achievement Gap with Extensive 1:1 Chromebook Program

    In this webinar, you’ll hear directly from Dustin Hardin, Director of Technology at New Caney Independent School District (New Caney ISD). You’ll hear about the three year journey New Caney ISD took from not having any wireless access in their 14 campuses to starting a 1:1 program with Chromebooks. This will include a brief overview of all the milestones in the three year period (moving from a legacy email system to Gmail, automating student accounts, etc.), how the decision was made for Chromebooks, and most importantly, how they afforded the 1:1 program. 12/03/14

  • Measuring the Effectiveness of 1 to 1 Initiatives

    Has your district’s student computing initiative been successful? Has it positively impacted learning outcomes? Moving from substitutive to transformational teaching practices is a journey and providing the right roadmap and development opportunities is essential for success. Clear Creek ISD started on this journey 3 years ago with a decision to provide devices to every student, grades 4 – 12, across the entire district. Midway through a 30,000 tablet deployment, CCISD is now seeing the positive impact and has learned many valuable lessons along the way. 10/29/14
