Fact or Myth? Device Implementation is Possible without the Headache!
Eric Davis, Head of Learning & District Innovation
Thursday, June 13th, 2019 at 11:30 AM-12:30 PM
*Note the midday time

This webinar shows how easy and painless device implementation can be! Learn how you can improve your student readiness for technology, enrich learning, foster 21st-century skills, and promote academic development. Your technology investments are incredibly expensive. On top of the human capital costs related to building a shared vision and training educators, the true costs of device repair and replacement are enormous and paying for them hamstrings a school’s ability to implement other technological initiatives.


Explore recent research findings from the University of Roehampton London that show how you can dramatically improve device implementation in schools through gamification. Discover how increasing student motivation can improve engagement and create self-regulated learners who have stronger technological knowledge and independence, as well as other 21st-century skills that are highly desirable in college and the workplace.


After watching this webinar, you’ll better understand how to get your students to care not only about but also FOR their devices. This information will be applicable whether you use gamification or not, and can start being applied in your school immediately. This recorded presentation will be of interest to elementary though high school district and school leaders.
