If this upcoming school year is going to be your first time teaching in a 1 to 1 classroom, you may be curious what you're getting into.
Teaching in a 1 to 1 classroom has many advantages. Students can receive a more well rounded education as well as gain better communication skills (believe it or not) and have more classroom interaction when they have access to technology at all times. A lot of the new lessons you can now design can directly translate into what you are preparing them for in the work force.
You must take the proper precautions when preparing to launch your 1 to 1 initiative, the main being - how do you keep students on task and eliminate distractions. This can be a major worry for many 1 to 1 instructors. The greatest advice that I can give you is to implement a classroom management and monitoring software solution. This will allow you to setup restrictions and also provide more creative interactive lessons to increase student engagement and learning.
