Part 5: Infrastructure

Building a school environment that offers ubiquitous access to technology involves much more than just the physical hardware. Unpacking and understanding the complex dynamics of developing a shared understanding and vision for learning, as well as the reality of managing a 1:1 environment are the foundational practicalities of creating a successful 21st century learning environment. Exploring Technology Visions, Standards and Benchmarks, and implementation strategies from other international schools will help participants build a well rounded understanding of the infrastructure needed.
