It’s nearly unanimous that bridging IT and instructional goals within schools leads to a better educational experience for students. But the debate over how to empower non-technical roles to assist with day-to-day management of student iPads rages on.
3D printing is leading a revolution in the world of technological design and creativity and is already playing an important role in many of today’s schools. Big Lake Schools and its 7th grade class are no exception. Their final project, titled Games, Hobbies, Sports and Inventions, incorporates the design and modeling process with the use of the Stratasys Mojo 3D Printer. With a broad range of project topics to choose from and the ability to physically get their parts, students are able to involve their own interests and have truly excelled in the course. 3D printing gives these students a new tool to figure out problems and express their creativity.

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.
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.
