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.

Haysville Public Schools - USD261
Director of Information Services
Haysville, Kansas
David Herbert is the Director of Information Technology for Haysville, USD261, in Haysville, Kansas. He has been in this position for 33 years and has programmed in several different programming languages. Hired in 1987, mainly as a programmer, his duties today are quite different then when he started. His formal education includes an Associate of Arts degree in Electronic Technology from Hutchinson Community Junior College, a Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education from Wichita State University, and a minor in Computer Science also from WSU. He has been the district’s PowerSchool Administrator since 2004, when PowerSchool became the district’s SIS. He loves to be challenged with programming requests that at first seem unreachable. But with a little persistence and Google, he finds himself up to the challenge! He wants to share a few technical challenges he has faced with other programmers to help further them in their programming careers.
