Over the past several decades, technology implementation in schools has been a major reform effort (Culp, Honey, & Mandinach, 2005). Conversations in the United States around transforming teaching and learning via the use of technology is being fueled at the national level by initiatives such as President Obama’s Future Ready Call to Action and P21’s Framework for 21st Century Learning. These initiatives are encouraging educators, students, and communities to commit to preparing students to be critical thinkers, problem solvers, communicators, and innovators (P21 Partnership for 21st Century Learning, 2009). This presentation will share promising practices and common pitfalls when implementing 1:1 technology initiatives in large urban districts. Drawing on both qualitative and quantitative methods, researchers studied three technology initiatives in urban public school districts to understand the factors influencing implementation outcomes. Presenters will discuss the implications of implementation on teacher pedagogy, professional development and offer critical insights for educators and policymakers engaged in both research and practitioner efforts in these areas.
