CURRICULUM
Opportunities to fine-tune your 1:1 program abound in the curriculum area. It is here that you can tailor your curriculum and electronic courseware to take into account the need to satisfy state standards and academic testing mandates. For example, past testing may have identified particular areas of academic concern. You'll want to use 1:1 as an opportunity to strengthen or even expand time spent in those areas.

You may decide to emphasize certain learning areas to prepare your students for success in specialized local job markets.

For example, if your students need English as a second language training or if manufacturing jobs dominate the local job market, now is the time to build instruction around those specialized requirements via your 1:1 curriculum. This phase of 1:1 preparation provides schools with an opportunity to enlist educational experts, civic leaders and hiring companies in a truly collaborative curriculum-setting process designed to equip students with marketable, in-demand skill sets.

CONTENT

In the age of traditional print and production, content waited as much as seven years to make its way into a textbook's next revision. In the digital age, that interval feels like light years. That's because etextbooks and ebooks can be updated quickly and easily, via the Internet, compressing the cycle time between revisions from years to days. Today's ebooks cost less than traditionally printed volumes and add virtually no weight to students' already bulging backpacks. The Internet delivers a wealth of fresh content to teachers and students every day, and most of it is available free of charge.

In addition, teachers can access a host of educational resources on a subscription basis. These grade-specific resources include information, tools and materials appropriate to subjects such as English, history, science, mathematics and Spanish. Each level specific subject area also features interactive components, such as games, that incorporate and expand students' critical thinking skills. Sets of measure outcomes tailored to the subject matter and grade level complete each resource. These rich media experiences experience can convert even the most passive student into an actively engaged learner.
