Approaching technology integration using best practices that acknowledge the teachers’ already heavy work loads and focus on quality teaching and learning in a safe and supportive environment can be a key to success. When both successes and failures are celebrated, innovation is encouraged and the educational paradigm shifts in schools. Using a set of guiding learning philosophies, the possibilities created in a 1:1 laptop environment, and the supports of a technology integrationist and instructional coach, middle school educators were challenged to try something new within their classrooms. The goal was to help these educators “play” with their pedagogical approaches and create a culture that embraces change. Ideas, suggestions, and insights about how to go about this work from others who are experiencing and researching similar processes will be the focus of the roundtable conversations.
