This session will provide techniques and strategies on how to use collaboration in a 1:1 classroom. An emphasis of this session will be on creating student – centered classrooms that promote self-efficacy and put students in charge of their own learning. Resources that promote collaboration in a 1:1 classroom will be discussed, modeled and applied to student learning. The continued focus of this session will be finding the best tools and determining the best pedagogy to offer cooperative learning opportunities in the classroom. Participants will have an opportunity to engage in activities that promote collaboration in the classroom. Strategies for management of devices and behavioral concerns in a digital classroom will also be addressed.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn about and explore some of the digital tools and apps discussed in the session. The TPCK framework will be discussed as a way to begin building content and technology enriched lessons for collaboration. This includes an understanding that lessons should be built on solid objectives and pedagogy and the technology is used to strengthen the instruction rather than viewing devices as just another “tool” in the classroom. Participants will learn strategies to help with classroom management when using 1:1 devices.
