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.

2016-17 will be my 26th year as a secondary science teacher. I'm a '91 Wartburg College grad. I completed a Masters in '08 through University of Wisconsin Stout's online program and it has influenced my teaching profoundly! Since then, I have been focused on Blended Learning and have enjoyed showing others how to teach with a Blended format throughout Iowa.
