Season 1 – Episode 7 – Parents, Leaders and 1:1 Programs [Podcast]

1-1athomeIn Episode 7, we discuss topics leaders need to make sure families understand about their role in take-home 1:1 digital device programs. We were joined by Shelly Feller, a parent in the Salisbury Township School District. Our big ideas included:

  • understanding the vision of the program
  • understanding the school’s responsibilities and the families responsibilities
  • making decisions about filtering, downloading media, accessing video sites and social networks
  • the biggest management challenges: responsibility, setting limits, privacy, amount of screen time

Join in the conversation!

Each episode we’ll leave you with a question or two to think about with the idea of provoking conversation. This week’s questions:

  • How have you addressed parent involvement in your 1:1 program?
  • As you implement or are implementing your 1:1 program, are there other issues you are focusing on that we didn’t mention today?
