As of July 6, OIIT is pleased to announce that nearly 3500 BPS eligible staff have participated in the Laptops for Learning (L4L) MacBook Exchange. While we are thrilled with this deployment rate, there are still some ‘Version 1’ L4L laptops that need to be returned to OIIT immediately as the June 30 return deadline has now passed. The current financial value of the laptops will be used to finance toward the purchase of ‘Version 2’ laptops saving the district money. ALL ‘Version 1’ L4L laptops need to be returned to OIIT ASAP, regardless of participation in the L4L MacBook Exchange. If you still have your ‘Version 1’ laptop, please call the OIIT Service Desk to make arrangements to drop off your laptop.
For those of you who are newly eligible for the L4L program or who wish to exchange your laptop for a new model, please stay tuned. We will be posting workshops to MyLearningPlan in the upcoming weeks. For questions regarding the L4L program, please contact Krissy Matthews at OIIT Professional Development Opportunities.
Workshops have been designed to familiarize participants with the latest software on their new L4L and how to seamlessly integrate technology into their instructional practice. A number of summer workshops are still available to teachers to support the integration of various technology tools either as stand alones or via the Summer Technology Pathway to Proficiency. Visit MyLearningPlan to register for next week’s sessions.
