Meetings on 1-to-1 Computing to Target Top School Leaders

By Rhea R. Borja — January 17, 2007 1 min read

The Bellevue, Wash.-based Anytime Anywhere Learning Foundation will hold five “summits” nationwide in March for K-12 education leaders on what it sees as the importance of one-to-one computer initiatives.

The foundation will lead superintendents, principals, and school board members in hands-on, daylong events. The events are designed to give them the “leadership vision” needed to create an “anytime, anywhere learning environment,” said Matthew Hoover, the program manager of the foundation.

The member-based foundation promotes providing one computer for each student to help young people learn analytical, problem-solving, and other skills that it views as increasingly important in the 21st century.

Presenters at the meetings will include superintendents with one-to-one-computer projects in their districts and education technology experts, such as Gary S. Stager, an authority in the field who is based in the Los Angeles area, and Pamela Livingston, the author of the 2006 book 1-to-1 Learning: Laptop Programs That Work and the technology director for the private, K-8 Peck School in Morristown, N.J.

The leadership summits are scheduled to be held in Secaucus, N.J., on March 5; Raleigh, N.C., on March 7; Wichita, Kan., on March 9; Chicago on March 12; and San Francisco on March 14.
