Episode 1.3: From Thereafter, I Was Ogybuns
In Episode 3 of Project Based Awesome, Erin and Chris discuss what 1 to 1 is all about.
We start the episode by explaining what exactly 1 to 1 means in a school setting, realizing that not everyone listening to the podcast will be familiar with the term. After explaining what 1 to 1 means, each of us discusses our personal experiences with going 1 to 1 in our classes. We discuss our progression, LMS’s, and the transformational qualities of going 1 to 1 for both teachers and students.
Chris’ discussion is based around how his class was transformed with technology. He touches on how he and his students adopted the mantra of “embrace the process” and what that meant to them.
Erin goes into detail related to her experience going 1 to 1 in her classes and talks about the logistics of having a device in each of her students’ hands.
