The Iowa 1:1 Institute exists to:
  • Help the Midwest’s 1:1 districts learn from each other about innovative teaching, learning, and administrative practices that are occurring in their districts;
  • Build excitement and ‘buzz’ around 1:1 laptop computing initiatives in the Midwest; and
  • Help others who are interested in 1:1 computing learn more about how to get started and be successful.
The institute is open to anyone interested in 1:1 laptop computing initiatives in P-12 schools, whether they currently are working in such a program or just want to learn more.

Sustainable Innovation: Creating a space for innovation to happen.

Innovation seems to be a buzz word these days. Big business is adopting the idea.

NEC Global, a global provider of information technology services - Empowered by innovation.
Nissan, well..you know - Innovation that excites.
Plantronics, a company producing audio communications equipment for business and consumers - Sound innovation.

My main question is: How do we innovate? How do you think innovatively? I don’t think it’s possible.

Innovation is not something you do. It’s something that happens. You do not perform a set number of actions to be innovative. There are no Lego-style directions to construct innovation. Innovation is a byproduct of imagination and realism. It happens when you dream with hard edges.

Come and contribute to a conversation that can help the group define the next steps for learning and student engagement. Join us!
