The purpose of my contact is to ask you for some help as we plan our 1:1 initiative. Our school district is in the first year of our 1:1. We have approximately 100 students per grade. This year we will be issuing laptops to all grade 6 students. Our plan is to expand this to grades 6-8 in 2010-2011 and finally grades 9-12 in 2011-2012.

We are looking for some data on how many technicians and instructional coaches we need to add as this initiative grows.

I was wondering if you could provide some feedback on how your district moved to a 1:1 and at what points did you add additional personnel. How was this decided?

Thank you very much for your time and feedback.

Hi Bill,
In North Carolina, we've started a Ning that is specifically designed to support 1:1 educators. I invite you (and other 1:1 educators) to join! :

To address your request more specifically, I suggest that you take a look at some of the resources that we provided participants who attended our 1:1 Institute this summer. Greene Co., NC has posted some great resources on our Summer Institute wiki:

Hope this helps!
I wish I could be of some help. I found this because I am looking to start 1:1 at my school. I am struggling to choose the right, durable laptops. If anyone has suggestions about how to choose, or laptops that they love (especially pcs), I'm all ears.

This is our systems approach to 1:1 for our 1300+ schools 500000 students environment... look for the 21 steps Byte article.
