COACHING LEADS TO DOING

We encourage a 15:1 student to teacher ratio in a computer lab environment. As teachers “competence” improves, the teacher can take over the role of computer teacher. Over time, the classroom teacher builds the 3 “C’s” and is able to seamlessly use technology in their instructional day.
