Live Blog Chat: Rolling Out a 1-to-1 Program: Rochester City's Path

A true partnership between the chief academic and technology offices is critical to planning and implementing a successful 1-to-1 technology initiative. Aware of the minefields that can await school systems as they transition to digital programs, the Rochester City School District has created a working group of key stakeholders who make decisions about devices, textbooks —or tech-books— professional development for teachers and principals, and other key areas that will have an impact on the program.

Hear district Chief Information Technology Officer AnnMarie Lehner and Chief of Curriculum and School Programs Jennifer Gkourlias discuss how the two departments are collaborating.
