Ask a public school administrator about a cost effective way to try to go 1:1 in a school, and the odds are a good many of them will say to buy Chromebooks. We had the privilege of being asked to come to a school to pioneer paperless classrooms. We were always known as those teachers who were out there, dancing around the room, doing whatever we could to keep kids engaged. We were also known as those who were always looking for new ways to engage students. To us, this sounded perfect.
As our new school year started, we had our carts full of Chromebooks, we had plans, we were ready to roll. While there were certainly people who were naysayers, we were fortunate. We had tons of support. We had great administrators, a great tech director, and a great group of technicians that did their best to keep us up and running.
