Latest Event Updates
We are seeking dynamic and exciting presentations for the New England 1:1 Summit. Presenting at the #NE1to1 provides a unique experience for connecting with educators and helping to grow your network. Presentations can be about educational technology best practices and examples of engaging student learning with digital technology. We are seeking presentations for all kinds of 1:1 and digital learning environments.
Each session will be one hour in length. Every presentation location at Marshall Simonds Middle School has an installed projector and audio system including presenter microphone. However, you will need to bring your own laptop or presentation device.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
The BPS EdTech Team is proud to announce an exciting new addition to this year’s New England 1:1 Summit. On Saturday, April 12th we will host the first ever New England Student Showcase at the Summit. The NESS will feature K-12 student-led presentations across all content areas. Attendees of student showcase sessions will have the opportunity to learn about the types of projects students from 1:1 environments create and how the innovative integration of educational technology is impacting their learning.
We are seeking proposals from schools throughout New England to take part in the NESS. If you currently teach in a 1:1 classroom (you don’t need to teach in a fully 1:1 school), whether it be 1:1 iPads, Chromebooks, laptops, or BYOD environments, we’d love to highlight the work of your students and give them the opportunity to collaborate with the BPS EdTech team as student presenters. Additionally, if your school has a program similar to the BHS Help Desk, where your students are playing a role in assisting teachers and students with technology integration, please consider submitting a proposal to be presenters.
The NESS is being designed to showcase specific examples of lessons, assessments, and student exemplars which will provide attendees with ideas and inspiration to take back to their own classrooms as more and more schools work towards creating 1:1 environments.
The New England 1:1 Summit was created to focus on tools that can help students learn and grow. In keeping with the focus of the program, the student showcase will not be device specific, rather it will serve as a platform for students all throughout New England to demonstrate and promote the power of a 1:1 classroom.
For questions regarding the NESS, please contact Jenn Scheffer, Burlington High School Instructional Technology Specialist at firstname.lastname@example.org
The event that started it all returns to Burlington this April!

1:1 School Visits at elementary, middle, and high school locations
Attendees will learn about the 1:1 iPad program in Burlington Public Schools. The Friday session includes a presentation about 1:1 learning environments and best practices for creating the most beneficial educational technology programs. Attendees will also have the opportunity to tour 1:1 classrooms in session with students. The opportunity to visit a 1:1 classroom in action is a powerful way to see what 1:1 learning looks like especially for those educators who have not yet taught in that environment.
There will be three options for attendees happening at the same time in Burlington – elementary, middle, or high school presentation and classroom visits:
Francis Wyman Elementary School which is 1:1 iPads in grades 1, 4, and 5.
Marshall Simonds Middle School which is fully 1:1 iPads in grades 6, 7, and 8.
Burlington High School which is currently an Apple Distinguished 1:1 iPad School for grades 9-12.

The New England 1:1 Summit at Marshall Simonds Middle School in Burlington
Join educators from around New England and beyond for the 2014 New England 1:1 Summit. The New England 1:1 Summit was first held in Burlington by the Burlington Public Schools EdTech Team in 2012. The 2012 event was the first educational technology event focused entirely on 1:1 learning environments held in New England. The event had over 450 participants and featured presentations from educators, administrators, and IT professionals.
The event returns to Burlington this April and will again feature presentations and hands-on learning about technology in the classroom. While the focus is on 1:1 learning, the event is not device specific. Sessions will include discussions about iPads, Chromebooks, PC and Mac laptops, as well as educational applications that help our students succeed and grow.
The event is FREE and even includes lunch and prizes!
