I wrote the following in response to a teacher at a school with a brand-new laptop program. They’re all getting started with laptops and the students, but it sounded like the professional development time was pretty slim in terms of preparing the teachers for how to manage the laptops in the classroom. We’re working on a more formal set of recommendations for our US teachers this year, but so far this is a draft of ten ideas for classroom management in a laptop environment. Many of these ideas were gleaned from the first year of our MS laptop program. 1) Start small, and then grow. Students want to use the laptops, and they aren’t going to “hate them” if their use in the classroom is infrequent at first.
