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.

Would students still show up to school even if it was optional? My goal is to help make school so engaging that students would always choose to show up. I taught biology at Sioux City West High School for the first 7 years of my career. I spent one year as an instructional strategist Consulting Teacher, and now I am the Digital Learning Program Coordinator for Sioux City Schools. “If we teach today’s students as we taught yesterday’s, we rob them of tomorrow.”― John Dewey
