It was a real honor to find Leyden High School District 212 on Tom Vander Ark's (@tvanderark) 100 Schools Worth Visiting post on GettingSmart.com today. What I am most proud of is that Leyden is one of the few truly public school districts on this list. That is a huge testament to the Leyden Board of Education, the administration, the faculty, staff, community, and most certainly the student body. We are now in our third year being fully 1:1 with all 3.400 students getting issued Dell Chromebooks and have been happy to share our story with thousands of educators around the country by way of opening our doors for site visits, hosting a 3-day 1:1 summer symposium each of the last two summers (and doing it again next summer), participating in webinars, sharing at conferences, and much more.
I have been attempting to archive as many resources as I can remember to add to the 1:1 at Leyden page on this blog. You can also access this list using bit.ly/Leyden1to1Resources. I hope you find something there that helps and please feel free to reach out with questions. I am always happy to share and learn from others, as well.
