Based on implementation of 1:1 computing in 28 schools, Digital Wish designed a technology curriculum based around the NETS standards. In addition to the curriculum, you'll also get comprehensive leadership and planning resources that will guide you through the challenges and obstacles associated with implementing 1:1 computing initiatives in any classroom. Using these resources, we've reduced planning time from 18 months to just 2 months.
