MUSCATINE, IOWA Middle Schools adding to the discussion. Not a 1:1 but piloting netbooks.


At Central and West Middle Schools in Muscatine, Iowa, four social studies/language arts classrooms are piloting netbooks for technology & literacy integration. At Central Middle School, the netbooks are shared between two classrooms on a regular ongoing basis.
All the software used in Miss Burger's Room 222 is web based for “anywhere, anytime” teacher and student access.
Collaboration:

Student Examples:

I think the best way to illustrate the impact of integrating technology and information literacy is to let the students speak for themselves through their work.
Some examples of my students' learning projects can be found on my classroom website here: http://missburger.weebly.com
