Consider how the school will monitor and continually review the program and its impact on learning.
Schools may wish to conduct internal research projects which align with the school-based goals of the 1-to-1 program. This may involve areas such as literacy, numeracy, collaboration, student engagement or attendance. This will give you rich evidence that you can provide to program supporters, critics, parents and prospective parents. It gives you evidence to support you in continuing and expanding your program. It also helps you identify any missed steps that may have occurred during the initial implementation, so you can take corrective courses of action.
Individual schools may conduct their own evaluation using a range of strategies, including:
Have you considered?
- Reviewing the impact of the program against the vision?
- What impact has the program had on student learning outcomes over time?
- What has been the impact on student's attitudes to learning over time?
- What changes in teaching practice have been evidenced?
- Identifying what learners and teachers will stop doing due to the introduction of technology?
- Showcasing examples demonstrating the benefits of 1-to-1 to teaching and learning.
