Please join us at the Save the Bay Center for our annual meeting.  After a review of the past year for the organization and a light dinner, we'll hear about 1:1 implementation strategies.


We're excited to be having Justin Reich, an educational researcher at Harvard University, speak to us about successful 1:1 implementations.

The School Leader's 1-1 Implementation Checklist

Your school has decided to go ahead with that 1-1 rollout: what now? In this session, we'll examine some of the critical considerations for educators leading 1-1 efforts in schools and districts. We'll explore a checklist of key strategies for success, drawn from research and exemplar schools and systems.

Menschel HarvardX Research Fellow, based in the Office of the President and Provost at Harvard University, exploring the possibilities and limits of online learning through the HarvardX platform. He is also a Fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society, a Lecturer at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and a lecturer in the Scheller Teacher Education Program at MIT.
