1:1 School Visits at elementary, middle, and high school locations
Attendees will learn about the 1:1 iPad program in Burlington Public Schools. The Friday session includes a presentation about 1:1 learning environments and best practices for creating the most beneficial educational technology programs. Attendees will also have the opportunity to tour 1:1 classrooms in session with students. The opportunity to visit a 1:1 classroom in action is a powerful way to see what 1:1 learning looks like especially for those educators who have not yet taught in that environment.
There will be three options for attendees happening at the same time in Burlington – elementary, middle, or high school presentation and classroom visits:
Burlington High School which is currently an Apple Distinguished 1:1 iPad School.
Marshall Simonds Middle School which is fully 1:1 with iPads for students in grades 6-8.
Francis Wyman Elementary School which is 1:1 with iPads in grades 1, 4, and 5.

The New England 1:1 Summit at Marshall Simonds Middle School in Burlington
Join educators from around New England and beyond for the 2014 New England 1:1 Summit. The New England 1:1 Summit was first held in Burlington by the Burlington Public Schools EdTech Team in 2012. The 2012 event was the first educational technology event focused entirely on 1:1 learning environments held in New England. The event had over 450 participants and featured presentations from educators, administrators, and IT professionals.
The event returns to Burlington this April and will again feature presentations and hands-on learning about technology in the classroom. While the focus is on 1:1 learning, the event is not device specific. Sessions will include discussions about iPads, Chromebooks, PC and Mac laptops, as well as educational applications that help our students succeed and grow.
