1:1/Blended Learning Resources
Tools for Implementation

The traditional classroom and the computer lab have distinct advantages and limitations. In the past, teachers have had to choose between the power of computing and the freedom of face-to-face interaction with a group. Putting a device in the hands of each student provides the best of both worlds. Teachers and students can now communicate and collaborate in ways impossible until now.
