    Overview: Whether your school has already gone 1:1 or you're just thinking about it, changing classroom practice doesn't end with the distribution of hardware and software. Building and sustaining 21st century teaching and learning practices requires a new kind of support structure, focusing on human relationships and pedagogy. Many schools label this position as a Technology Facilitator, but there are a surprising number that don't yet see the need for this role. It is the partnership between the teacher and facilitator that brings out the full potential of any laptop program.
    In this session, Chrissy Hellyer (grade 5 classroom teacher) and Kim Cofino (Technology and Learning Coordinator) will describe and share examples of their successful Teacher-Facilitator partnership at the International School Bangkok (and beyond). Chrissy will offer insights, examples and resources from the perspective of the practicing classroom teacher. Kim will offer strategies, processes and resources from the perspective of the technology facilitator.
    This presentation was also featured in the K12Online 2011 Conference in the Team Captains strand. You can watch the video recording here:
