From California to Maine, educators have acknowledged that providing mobile devices to all students and teachers afford users a dynamic, relevant, and individualized learning opportunity. Despite this fact, few have discussed the real world nuts and bolts process necessary to implement a district wide 1:1 mobile learning initiative from the ground up. This fast paced workshop will provide an overview of the Coachella Valley Unified School District’s 1:1 Mobile Learning Initiative and Measure X Bond, a voter approved bond used solely to purchase 18,000 iPads and fund the infrastructure improvements necessary to implement a district-wide 1:1 mobile learning initiative.
The session will provide participants with lessons learned, timelines, staff engagement and training practices, important infrastructure, and budgetary considerations when contemplating a mobile learning initiative. Also highlighted will be critical steps to take when developing and executing a successful voter-approved funding mechanism that involves technology.

Upon leaving, this workshop will help participants to answer the following questions:
What are the steps involved?
Who are the professionals I need to engage?
How do I to effectively educate my internal and external stakeholders regarding the benefits of 1:1 mobile learning?
How do I establish a culture of engagement and empowerment while asking my staff to revamp their entire curriculum and integrate dynamic mobile learning techniques?
