For Students, 1:1 is not about devices, 1:1 is about teacher/student connection

When most schools talk about 1:1 programs, the focus immediately turns to the device or devices. We tend to direct schools to focus on educational outcomes, curricula integration, and other goals and objectives that will lead to the best device decisions and program structure. Maybe, however, we are all missing the point.

1 to 1 programs are really about teacher/student connection and interaction.

We know by informally surveying teachers when we speak at conferences, that Google Apps for Education, its collaboration tools, and Classroom enable teachers to provided 2 to 3 times more individual feedback in about 1/2 the time.

What we may be missing is that the platform can enable a broader teacher/student connection that goes beyond academics.

This video from the EDU team at Google shows us how.
