Greenwich Public Schools hired a project manager to coordinate the roll-out of 9,000 devices to all students, teachers and administrators over a three year period. The roll-out was successfully completed on-time and within-budget while setting a high benchmark for quality project planning, tracking of organizational success metrics, and program evaluation. Organizational success metrics were tracked in key project areas including teacher shifts in practice, professional learning, use of digital tools, and student outcomes. Project planning documents, key success factors, and lessons learned will be shared that can provide immediate value to any 1:1 implementation.

Learning Outcomes:

Participants will leave the presentation with best practice examples of:
• A three-year system-wide project plan to implement a 1:1 environment with tips on how to roll-out a digital learning environment on-time and within budget
• Educational goals and subgoals that define desired shifts in teacher practice with measurements of progress based on survey results
• A digital learning environment program of studies that provided 39 hours of professional learning aligned with the educational goals, district curriculum, desired shifts in practice, and digital toolbox
• Digital toolboxes that define the district standard power applications that were found to best enhance teaching and learning
• Organizational success metrics used to track progress in all project plan workstreams (e.g., project management, curriculum, learning management system, professional learning, infrastructure, mobile device management, application usage, communication and program evaluation)
• Lessons learned and key success factors
