1:1 Success Indicators

Sharing desired outcomes for our 1:1 program.  Building an idea of success around these goals/statements.  Hoping to get some feedback...

The success of our 1:1 program is measured against the skills needed to excel in a rapidly evolving global society.  The notion of what it means to be college and career ready has been reshaped by a world where access and connectivity are becoming ubiquitous.  By placing connected devices in the hands of students learners possess the autonomy to:

CREATE
COLLABORATE
EXPLORE
and
SHARE WITH THE GLOBAL COMMUNITY.

Indicators of success for the 1:1 program are linked to a student’s ability to create, collaborate, explore and share. Definitions for these core digital age skills are provided below.

CREATE
Students and Teachers will “make” content in ways not witnessed in the past and offer product/solution in ways not conceived before.

COLLABORATE
Students will connect with others and develop PLNs.  As a result, problem-solving will become a collaborative endeavor in which students have to effectively work in teams/groups to realize a solution.

EXPLORE
Students will tackle complex problems and  use the DISCOVER research process to gather evidence needed to make informed decisions.

SHARE WITH THE GLOBAL COMMUNITY
Students and Teachers will communicate ideas to both local and global audiences.

Students and Teachers will tackle complex problems and  use the DISCOVER research process to gather evidence needed to make informed decisions.
  • I can define a thesis or identify research problem.
  • I can develop empathy through observation
  • I can gather data/information, and verify the sources of this information.
  • I can organize and analyze this information in order to draw conclusions.
  • I can effectively express my conclusions, supported by data/information.
