MOBILIZE & DIVERSIFY THE LAB! reduce friction in learning
reduce friction in collaboration
mobilize the furniture
mobilize the technology
mobilize the internet
reduce habitual use of technology
make passive FACEBOOK staring difficult
make creative collaboration easy
1:1 does not mean a desktop each (this isn't 1984 & these aren't TVs!) Powerful, resilient cameras that offer full manual control and many lense options Existing floor plan with radically revised seating plan Inspired by the Martela Inspiring School
and preventing the passive Facebook/youtubing
that seems like evolved TV watching. http://www.martela.com/In_English/Concepts/Inspiring_School middle of room completely fluid
all tables and chairs on lockable wheels all mobile tech tagged and charging at the end of each period using docks natural and full spectrum lit table for macro photography & model video production greenscreen studio with wall

Better design choices will change these habits! Better classroom design around technology will also reduce distraction and allow students to focus on creation instead of consumption! Olympus PEN System Cameras that mean it multiple body options starting at the basic (and cheap) EP-1
many lense options
many adapter options
advanced control

Numbers Apple bits: Photo/Video: Furniture: Other Tech: $25,000 $5000 $9,000 $5,000 24 desks @ $200ea, 28 chairs @$150ea file server, routers, misc networking, software total: ~ $41,000 comparison Current, static, all desktop school lab with board imaged, MDG intentionally hobbled WindowsXP computers that barely do anything useful and offer students access to less than 1/10th the online space they would have on a free Google account (or 1/25th the space they currently have on UGcloud). $1800/computer x 28 computers = $50,400 $10,000 more for a lab that does nothing useful using old Windows, broken browser (incorrectly installed Internet Explorer) and useless word processor (Wordperfect), and enocurages bad habits and causes IT headaches (server overload, constant maintenance by board IT, etc) ... and that includes mobile technology and ergonomic chairs and mobile desks that actually encourage collaboration http://prezi.com/bjmmmgc3aka5/a-digital-skills-continuum-differentiating-technology/?kw=view-bjmmmgc3aka5&rc=ref-1136060
