The Iowa 1:1 Institute exists to:
  • Help the Midwest’s 1:1 districts learn from each other about innovative teaching, learning, and administrative practices that are occurring in their districts;
  • Build excitement and ‘buzz’ around 1:1 laptop computing initiatives in the Midwest; and
  • Help others who are interested in 1:1 computing learn more about how to get started and be successful.
The institute is open to anyone interested in 1:1 laptop computing initiatives in P-12 schools, whether they currently are working in such a program or just want to learn more.

I am a computer science, and 6th grade science teacher. I teach Tiny Techies, a program I learned from NewBoCo, and CS Discoveries, a program through Code.org. I am a facilitator for Code.org. I also facilitate Artificial Intelligence courses throughout the school year. I teach 3 year olds through 8th graders computer science skills. I believe that all ages and abilities can learn computer science. I love to teach.
