1:1 Readiness Survey

CASTLE is partnering with Educational Collaborators to present a 1:1 readiness survey.  This survey helps districts thinking about implementing a 1:1 initiative determine their readiness for an implementation.  The assessment took me about 30 minutes to complete (they recommend 45), and it targets the following factors:

  • Goals and Objectives
  • Financial Planning
  • Device Procurement & Deployment
  • End User Support
  • Curriculum Integration
  • Marketing & Communication
  • Faculty Development
  • Infrastructure Development
 Educational Collaborators also offers a post-survey consultation based on the results, something that AEAs offer as well.  Educational Collaborators values this instrument as $600, so it being free is a good deal for interested districts.
