TEACH TO ONE

 
What is Teach to One and how does it work?
 
Teach to One: Math is New Classrooms' flagship personalized instructional model focused on middle school math (students in grades 5-8). The model replaces a school's traditional textbook-based math program with a reimagined way of teaching and learning - one that is both aligned to Common Core State Standards and personalized to each student's unique academic needs and way of learning.
Teach to One: Math redesigns the physical classroom to create several learning stations that teachers and students move between throughout a single class period. Students receive a targeted, individualized learning experience, at the right academic level, using the most appropriate instructional format. Over a single session, students may work on one of several instructional approaches, or learning modalities - including live teacher-led instruction, student collaboration, software, or virtual instructors. Students are assessed daily to determine whether they have mastered a skill or need more time on that skill. Such daily assessments determine what each student will work on the following class day.

GOOGLE CHROMEBOOKS 1:1
 
What does 1:1 mean?
Research is clear that to ensure student success, education must move from a teacher - centric to a learner-centric approach. One-to-one programs create the opportunity for authentic personalization of teaching and learning for each student. With access to personal portable technologies in a wireless environment students can learn at their own pace, ability levels, and take advantage of the worldwide experiences and resources available online-and just in time. 
 
What does 1:1 look like in the Jersey City Public Schools?

Last year, the Jersey City City Public Schools started a 1:1 pilot for students in grades 3-5. To date, the district has purchased some 1500 Chromebooks  and has begun district-wide technology upgrades. The Chromebook is an affordable and effective vehicle for Jersey City Public Schools' 1:1 initiative, but professional development is  the motor powering it all. The focus of the 1:1 initiative will be changing teaching and learning in the classroom environment, not the equipment, in this case the Chromebook.
