Policy Development, Communication, and Training
Shawn Hoppes, Jason Schmidt - Bennington Public Schools
Bennington Public Schools implemented phase one of a multi-year plan to deploy Chromebooks to all students in grades 6-12. In this session, we’ll share how we set up our deployment, why we chose the grades we did, how we addressed student and teacher training, and communication to our parents.

Policy pivots from 1:1 iPads to BYOD
Dave Evertson, Bill Beckenhauer - Cozad Community Schools
Cozad implemented a 1:1 iPad program for high school students in 2011. Since then, local and regional developments have necessitated a change in Cozad to more of a BYOD model. Come join us for a conversation around how Cozad navigated the change in policy as well as how others might look at redeveloping and re-evaluating policy.

Heather Callihan - Grand Island Northwest
Patty Wolfe - Cozad Community Schools

Sharing teacher success stories (What works with 1:1)
Deanna Stall - Gibbon Public Schools

Making the Relationship Between The Technology Department & The Teaching & Learning Department Great!
David Fringer and Devin Schoening - Council Bluffs Community School District
The relationship between departments in any organization is critical. No relationship is more important than the one between Technology and Instruction in a school district. What is the best way to nurture that relationship so that students and teachers benefit? Council Bluffs Community School District pays attention to this relationship to ensure a unified approach to instructional technology integration. Organization, Culture, Collaboration, and Cooperation are the key components of a great relationship!
Making the Switch!
Brian Gibson - Grand Island Northwest
Changing devices in your school got you scared? Northwest made the decision to change from iPads to Chromebooks after using the iOS devices for 2 years. We are on year 3 using Chromebooks and everyone loves them. I'll show you how we did it and the planning that went into making this decision.
