10 (+1) Ideas to Help You Prepare for Teaching in a 1:1 Classroom.

A good list, but I’d like to add an 11th point:

11. Build a web platform to host the work students and faculty do on their devices.

I ran a 3:1 (iPhone, iPad and MBP) program at Think Global School an found that the essential ingredient for success was a web platform that connected the three devices. We used a custom-built, ELGG-based setup nick-named Spot. Everything anyone made–docs, blogs, bookmarks, photos, video, you name it–was uploaded to Spot and tagged for the group to share. 

Without such a connecting platform, the devices become glorified–and expensive–pads of paper shoved into the bottom of a backpack.
