Technology is an incredible resource for learning. It connects us to people all over the world, it enables us to find answers to our questions with the click of a button, and it is versatile enough to be used by students of varying skill levels.

I have been teaching in a 1:1 classroom for four years at Washington Yu Ying Public Charter School. We started in 5th grade when my colleague got a Khan Academy grant to purchase 12 Chromebooks to supplement the Chromebooks our school provided. We then did a Donor’s Choose project to purchase the remaining computers. We have 1:1 Chromebooks for each student in 4th and 5th grade, and we’re introducing 1:1 for 3rd grade this year.

The event included a mix of teachers from many schools, tech geeks and others. Peter Logli, program manager of Google, gave a presentation with several other speakers. George said she attended a summit last year in New Hampshire, where she was connected with Logli.
The summit at SHS consisted of panels rotating every hour, giving everyone opportunities to experience the different presentations. Attendees widened their understanding of tools such as Google Classroom and Google Drive. There were several panels, including virtual reality designs and new education software that could be used for future students.

Overall, the event was an apparent success, despite not reaching the expected turnout.
Sponsors of the event included Intel, Acer, GoGuardian and other high-profile companies. Student volunteers comprised the majority of the staff. However, according to George, “support for the event would need to increase drastically for another event to be possible.”
