While some schools are able to reach the ratio of one student per device, it isn't always the ideal environment in which to learn and it . 1:1 status can create expectations that students are always on devices or it can allow for huge numbers of devices to go unused in the carts around a school. In this session we will explore all of the different ways of leveraging a 1:1 ratio as well as moving beyond a simple ratio to discuss the relationship between a student and a device that is far more advantageous to blended and personalized learning.

How does device access (and usage) change the way we plan lessons to create more engaging learning tasks? How does it support and empower students? If we haven't answered these questions, why should we hold a 1:1 ratio up as the ideal? In this session we will interrogate the notion of 1:1 and explore alternative ways of supporting Blended and Personalized Learning in our schools.
